China chose the slogan “One World, One Dream” () to express the common wishes of people all over the world to strive for a bright future. The looming question is how spectators, athletes, and journalists from around China and the world will be allowed to express their many, varied wishes and opinions, especially when they touch on politics, religion, and other sensitive topics. This panel will address an array of issues concerning freedom of expression and the upcoming Olympic games.

 

Members of the Association, their guests and all other interested persons are invited to attend. There is no fee for attending the program, however registration is necessary.
