UNC Update – Challenging Human Rights: China’s Dismantled One-Child Policy
April 7, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This semester, UNC Update is investigating the theme of “Challenging Human Rights”, with the first event being a discussion on the dismantled One-Child Policy and the future of the Two-Child Policy. Join us to hear from Mr. Yong Cai as he introduces the topic and facilitates a continued discussion with students. Mr. Cai is a professor of sociology at UNC. His research is focused primarily on China’s fertility rates and the challenges China faces. After a short presentation, students are able to discuss the detrimental effects as well as the positive effects brought by the One-Child Policy while considering the human rights issues.
