Chapter Summary

The UN, and especially the High Commissioner for Human Rights, faces a dilemma in its need to hold governments accountable for performance on human rights issues while maintaining good relations to keep channels open for diplomacy and influence. This chapter first describes a selection of the activities implemented by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in the course of its technical cooperation program with China, to familiarize readers with the objectives and its impact. It then identifies challenges faced both by the High Commissioner and OHCHR in carrying out the program and discusses how these were tackled. It concludes with an analysis of the High Commissioner’s performance in balancing the responsibility to both engage with and criticize the Chinese government.
