Charter 08

Posted in China, Politics by Chris on December 12, 2008

The release of Charter 08 yesterday, an internally produced document calling for the installation of a political regime in China founded on democracy and respect for human rights, has been catching the notice of a number of Asian-oriented blogs, here and here. An English translation of Charter 08 can be found here. The release of Charter 08 is especially timely if you are reading Bell’s East and West, which covers the same overall issues, specifically dealing with the issue of  how to think of human rights in an Asian context.
