The past three months have been anything but ordinary times in China. Headline-making developments include a high-profile defection attempt to the US consulate, the ousting of a prominent Party official, and the dramatic escape of a blind rights lawyer from house arrest--all prior to the upcoming power transition in China. With the downfall of a few hardliners in the leadership, many wonder whether there is an opportunity for China to move toward greater respect for rule of law and human rights.

We welcome your participation in this forum. See you there!
