The United States and China will hold the U.S.-China Human Rights Dialogue on April 27-28, 2011. Assistant Secretary for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor Michael Posner will lead an interagency delegation to Beijing for the event.

Discussions will focus on human rights developments, including the recent negative trend of forced disappearances, extralegal detentions, and arrests and convictions, as well as rule of law, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, labor rights, minority rights and other human rights issues of concern.

The United States looks forward to candid and in-depth discussions over the course of the two days. The United States raises human rights concerns with China regularly and at high levels. The Human Rights Dialogue provides an important channel for in-depth discussions of these issues between U.S. and Chinese experts.
