Liu Xiaobo

Liu Xiaobo has just been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, despite
threats rom the Chinese government to the Norwegian government. I am
pleased to have played a minor part in making Liu Xiaobo known in the
West. I translated a couple of articles of Liu Xiaobo's published in
the most prominent Chinese human rights journal in the West, Human
Rights in China (New York):

"Beijing's Human Rights Exhibition" (2007)

"The Negative Effects of the Rise of Dictatorship on World
Democratization" (2006)

Several other dissidents whose articles I've translated for Human Rights
in China remain in prison, under house arrest, or subject to daily
harassment from the authorities in China.
