The University of Ottawa Press cordially invites you to the book launch of Confronting Discrimination and Inequality in China: Chinese and Canadian Perspectives, edited by Errol P. Mendes and Sakunthala Srighanthan.

In Confronting Discrimination and Inequality in China, leading experts from Canada and China analyze the human rights challenges that are occurring as China undergoes drastic social changes and propose policies for protecting human rights and promoting balanced development.

With perspectives as varied as those of official government sociologists from the Central State council, dissident activists, radical ecologists, and professional journalists, the Chinese contributors describe with courage and frankness the challenges associated with the changes happening in China. Leading human rights scholars from Canada provide insight on Canadian and international practices that protect human rights, and how they might be applied to a Chinese context.

Confronting Discrimination and Inequality in China is the result of research project “Implementation of International Human Rights: Promoting Anti-Discrimination in China,” funded by the Canadian International Development Agency.
