Predicaments Facing the Families of Mainland Chinese Prisoners of Conscience: From Prison to Benevolence

There are a number of prisoners of conscience in Mainland China. Some of their stories have been reported by international media, which, however, often neglect the situation of their families. What is their living condition? How is the relationship between the injurers of power and their victims? Ms. Zeng Jinyan will discuss the multifaceted predicaments facing the families of prisoners of conscience. She will discuss how to establish abstract political relationship with secret police and the society behind through substantive and everyday interactions.

Zeng Jinyan is a PhD student in HKU. Her research interest is the representation of identities and emotions in Chinese social protest. She once lived under house confinement for a long time.
