Another ‘Human Rights’-Related Activity Filed in Beijing

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law (RWI) recently filed a temporary activity titled “Anti-Discrimination and Human Rights Research Project, and Gender and Human Rights Teachers’ Program (反歧视与人权研究项目和社会性别与人权人权师资项目).” This marks the fourth temporary activity explicitly involving human rights-related work that RWI has successfully filed since the implementation of the Foreign NGO Law in January 2017. (No other foreign NGOs have used the term “human rights” (“人权”) in their filings.) It is also the first human rights-related activity filing in the last 12 months. The activity, which RWI carried out in collaboration with China University of Political Science and Law, is to take place in Beijing between May 20 and December 31, 2019.

RWI is a Swedish organization which focuses on human rights research, humanitarian law, and educational programs. ChinaFile wrote on the organization’s previous filing of temporary activities relating to human rights in May of last year.
