Stuart Foster, an American Sociology professor who pleaded guilty to stealing money from an associate while teaching at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, spent the better part of a year in a forced labor prison in southern China. The stories he told about his experience, which included assembling Christmas lights for export to American markets and sleeping on a concrete floor with dozens of inmates in a single room, simply confirmed what the international community has long suspected about China's prison system. This website, from the Laogai Research Foundation (LRF), documents the system's many human rights abuses. Start with the homepage, where you can view News & Views, LRF Commentaries, and LRF Events. Next read the excellent overview What is Laogai, which provides a history of the Chinese prison system up to the present day.
