Former Visiting Scholar Xu Zhiyong Quoted in Time Magazine
In the May 26, 2009 issue of Time Magazine, Xu Zhiyong commented on an article about the source of the March 2008 riots in Lhasa. "We want to help society, and help build rule of law," Xu said. "We want to be objective. On questions like Tibet, human rights and so forth, the Chinese government has a standpoint, foreign governments and foreign media have a standpoint. But it's also important to have an independent look at the problems," he continued.
