CECC roundtable on "China's National and Local Regulations on Religion"

I have received an announcement from the CECC (slightly edited) as follows:

The Congressional-Executive Commission on China will hold another in its series of staff-led Issues Roundtables, entitled "China's National and Local Regulations on Religion: Recent Developments in Legislation and Implementation," on Monday, November 20, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Room 2200 of the Rayburn House Office Building, Washington, DC.  All CECC hearings and Issues Roundtables are open to the public and the press.

On March 1, 2005, the State Council's Regulation on Religious Affairs (RRA) entered into force, representing the first comprehensive national regulation devoted to religious issues.  This Roundtable examines the interplay between the national RRA and local regulations and discusses the practical impact of such regulations on freedom of religion in China. 

The panelists are:

  • Eric R. Carlson, Attorney, Covington & Burling LLP, Washington, D.C. and  a Fellow of the International Center for Law and Religion Studies at J. Reuben Clark Law School, Brigham Young University.
  • Bob (Xiqiu) Fu, President, China Aid Association, Midland, Texas.
  • James W. Tong, Associate Professor of Comparative Politics, University of California-Los Angeles, and Editor of the journal Chinese Law and Government, Los Angeles, California.
