Abstract

This article considers the complex dimensions and implications of Internet business and human rights in China since 2010: 1) the rise and fall of Chinese social media firms (Sina Weibo and WeChat) and the prospect for advancing human rights via Chinese tech companies; 2) the range of foreign Internet firms’ approaches to doing business in China and their corresponding ethics implications; and 3) Chinese Internet businesses’ “going out” strategy and its human rights ramifications abroad.

Keywords: China, Google, Human Rights, Internet Business, Social Media
