Information Packet Series
Information Packets are compilations of articles and reports on a given country or subject from a broad spectrum of sources produced by the RIC.
China: People's Republic of China: The One-Child Family Policy (November 1992)
Profiles are papers that provide a detailed history of a given country and identify all of the groups at risk for human rights abuses, what has been done to these groups, and by whom. These papers also discuss relevant issues such as the judicial system and forms of political participation permitted in that country. Profiles are objective papers, which summarize and report a wide range of information available from credible sources, including government agencies, international organizations, other governments, non-governmental human rights monitoring groups, and academic sources. These papers are usually over 50 pages, with a table of contents and index.

These papers are usually over 50 pages in length and include a table of contents and index.
