A Musical Look at Human Rights in Taiwan

Human rights apply to many different aspects of our lives, and different groups of people face different kinds of human rights problems. Naturally, people deprived of life or liberty because of their opinions or through miscarriages of justice are victims of human rights violations. Likewise, people denied equal treatment because of their gender, ethnic or national origin, or sexual orientation are also victims of human rights violations. So are abused children or workers mistreated by their bosses.

Human rights get mixed report card

News from Taipei Times

Human rights conditions in Taiwan have improved over the past year, but causes for concern remain, according to a year-end evaluation released yesterday.

The Taiwan Association for Human Rights (台灣人權促進會) released its evaluation of human rights conditions in Taiwan for the year 2000 yesterday, listing improvements as well as setbacks.

Lin Feng-jeng (林峰正), chairperson of the association, said it is expected the society could use the evaluation as an indicator of human rights conditions in Taiwan.
