Dui Hua engages China in mutually respectful dialogue with the aims of securing the release and better treatment of individuals incarcerated for non-violent expression of political or religious beliefs and promoting transparency and rule of law. Dui Hua also consults with international and governmental institutions, including those of the United States, European Union, and other countries with bilateral human rights dialogues and consultations with China. We also consult with the United Nations, where we enjoy Special Consultative Status with its Economic and Social Council. We have testified before US congressional bodies and made official submissions to the UN.
“Prisoner lists” are tools pioneered by Dui Hua for submitting cases of concern to the Chinese government. These lists are compiled through Dui Hua’s independent research so that dialogue with China is based on well-informed facts. Dui Hua prepares prisoner lists both for its own direct submission to China and for international and governmental institutions to submit to China.
