Profile Series China: Family Planning Policy and Practice in the People's Republic of China   [open pdf - 161KB]

"China's family planning program represents one of the world's most comprehensive and controversial efforts to achieve rapid population stabilization. China experts differ in their assessment of the extent of coercion in the family planning program. There is general agreement, however, on the use of coercion in parts of China, including Fujian province. A recent informal review of asylum applications by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor reported that approximately 75 per cent of Chinese asylum seekers come from Fujian Province. In view of this, available information pertaining specifically to the family planning program in Fujian Province has been included in this report."
