Submission to the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights on China / Hong Kong

Posted February 23, 2021

SAR submitted the below report to the United Nations’ Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights for consideration by the upcoming 69th pre-sessional working group, expressing concerns and issuing recommendations in light of recent attacks on higher education in China/Hong Kong.

The submission on China details the recent increase in top-down ideological pressures that have impacted numerous areas of academic life. SAR recommends that the committee raise concerns with China’s State party representatives about “re-education” efforts targeting ethnic and religious minorities, restrictions on access to information, the monitoring and surveillance of academic activity, and the erosion of institutional autonomy in Hong Kong.
