Chinese Diplomacy, Western Hypocrisy and the UN Human Rights Commission

This report is an analysis of China’s diplomatic efforts with respect to key members of the commission over the last three years. It describes a pattern of aggressive lobbying by Chinese officials, using economic and political blandishments, that has worked to undermine the political will in both developed and developing countries to hold Beijing accountable in Geneva, coupled with procrastination and passivity on the part of China’s critics, the same governments that have been such vocal proponents of multilateralism.
