This hearing is the second in a series looking at China’s “long arm” and its impact on universally recognized freedoms. Witnesses will discuss the Chinese government and Communist Party’s efforts to interfere in multilateral institutions, threaten and intimidate rights defenders and their families, impose censorship mechanisms on foreign publishers and social media companies, and influence academic institutions and critical analysis of China’s past history and present policies. They will also offer recommendations for Congressional and Administration action.
Going into the pilot, the Library recognized that quality limitations could result from the high-speed scanning process, but considered that an acceptable trade-off when weighed against access to the rich and vast legislative material contained within these volumes. We hope you’ll agree as you have the opportunity to search and read the content, but we would like to hear your comments – positive or negative. You’ll note a short form associated with each volume where you can rate the quality of the image, value of the digital copy, and record any general comments you may have.
