Juan Pablo Cardenal:
The Spanish writer and journalist spent the past decade passing between China and Hong Kong. Beginning 4 years ago, he has carried out research on the internationalization of China in 40 countries across the world.

Can there be a greater contradiction than a Human Rights Council that incorporates dictatorships?

Year X Number 38 - October 23, 2012
Essential human rights principles say that for citizens ‘everything which is not forbidden is allowed’ while for the government ‘everything which is not allowed is forbidden’. But authoritarian states manage to turn these principles upside down both in law and it practice.
