Dissident Chen joins Witherspoon Institute, Bloomberg says

Chinese human-rights activist Chen Guangcheng, who fled to the United States last year, is joining the Witherspoon Institute, a research center that says it works to enhance public understanding of the moral foundations of free and democratic societies, Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday. Chen will be a distinguished fellow with the Princeton, New Jersey-based group, institute official Matthew Franck was quoted as saying. Chen, a blind lawyer, also will be affiliated with the Catholic University of America in Washington and the Lantos Foundation for Human Rights & Justice based in Concord, New Hampshire, Franck said.
