Congressional-Executive Commission on China: Annual Report 2020   [open pdf - 4MB]

This is the 2020 Annual Report of the Congressional Executive Commission on China. From the Document: "The Commission's 2020 Annual Report covers the period from July 1, 2019 to July 1, 2020. As discussed in the subsequent chapters of this report, the Chinese government and Communist Party have taken unprecedented steps in the last year to extend their repressive policies through censorship, intimidation, and the detention of individuals and groups for exercising their fundamental human rights, especially in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) and Hong Kong. In recent years, the Commission has become increasingly concerned that the Chinese government and Party have expanded their human rights violations around the world, even reaching the American people. These efforts include threatening and intimidating critics, blocking social media content, pressuring publishers to censor their content in China, influencing academic institutions to the detriment of academic freedom, interfering in multilateral institutions, and pressuring U.S. and international companies to suppress practices that do not conform to the political narratives and demands of Chinese officials. The Commission has contributed to bringing these issues to light with a series of hearings on the Chinese government's 'long arm of authoritarianism.' Building on this initiative, we are pleased that the 2020 Annual Report includes a new chapter on the Chinese government's human rights violations in the United States and globally, along with a new set of policy recommendations."
