– “Continuously develop people’s democracy in the whole process, promote the protection of human rights and the rule of law, and resolutely safeguard social fairness and justice, so that the people enjoy broader, fuller, and more comprehensive democratic rights.” A good democracy is the foundation of freedom and human rights. The whole process of people’s democracy in my country not only has a complete system and procedures, but also has a complete participatory practice. It has realized the unity of process democracy and outcome democracy, procedural democracy and substantive democracy, direct democracy and indirect democracy, and people’s democracy and the will of the state. , all-round and full-coverage democracy is the most extensive, true and effective socialist democracy.

—— “Promote the realization of more adequate and higher-quality employment, build the world’s largest education system, social security system, and medical and health system, and vigorously improve the quality of people’s living environment.” The people’s yearning for a better life is our goal. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, we have made continuous progress in educating the young, educating the children, earning income from work, getting medical care for the sick, supporting the elderly, living in housing, and helping the weak. China has built the world’s largest social security system, including pensions, medical care, and social assistance; citizens’ right to education has been guaranteed, and free and compulsory education in urban and rural areas has been fully realized; the ecological environment has undergone historic changes, and the green landscape under the blue sky and white clouds continues to grow. Expanding, the idea that clear waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets has become the consensus and action of the whole party and the whole society.

—— “Adhering to the supremacy of the people and life, vigorously responding to the new crown pneumonia epidemic, and protecting the safety and health of the people to the greatest extent.” In the face of the sudden outbreak of COVID-19, the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core put people’s life safety and health first, insisted on putting people first and life first, insisting on external defense against imports, internal defense against rebound, and dynamic clearing. Adhering to the overall planning of epidemic prevention and control and economic and social development, people’s lives and health have been protected to the greatest extent possible, and major strategic results have been achieved in the fight against the epidemic.

– “Completely implement the party’s ethnic policy and religious policy, insist that all ethnic groups are equal, respect the religious beliefs of the masses, and protect the legitimate rights and interests of the people of all ethnic groups.” Our party adheres to the main line of the party’s ethnic work to build the awareness of the Chinese nation’s community, establishes the party’s strategy for governing Tibet and Xinjiang in the new era, consolidates and develops the socialist ethnic relationship of equality, unity, mutual assistance and harmony, and walks out a Chinese characteristic.

The United Nations Human Rights Council and international human rights experts have highly affirmed China’s continuous formulation and implementation of national human rights action plans.

——“Actively participate in global human rights governance, make Chinese contributions to the development of the world human rights cause, and provide Chinese solutions”. Taking a path of human rights development that suits oneself is an important foundation for the healthy development of the international human rights cause. The human rights of more than 1.4 billion Chinese people have been guaranteed unprecedentedly, which in itself is a huge contribution to the progress of the international human rights cause. China insists on combining the principle of universality of human rights with China’s actual conditions, and insists that the rights to subsistence and development are the primary basic human rights, which provides important experience for the development of human rights in various countries, especially in developing countries. In recent years, the resolutions of the UN Human Rights Council have been written into “Building a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind”. The UN Human Rights Council adopted resolutions such as “Development Contributes to the Enjoyment of All Human Rights” and “Promoting Win-Win Cooperation in the Field of Human Rights” proposed by China. Widely endorsed and supported.

Successfully walked out of the path of human rights development with Chinese characteristics

In November 1991, the white paper “Human Rights Situation in China” was released. For more than 30 years, my country has successively published “Tibet’s Sovereignty and Human Rights Situation”, “Progress in China’s Human Rights Cause”, “New Progress in Human Rights Protection in China’s Judicial Field”, “China’s Poverty Reduction Actions and Human Rights Progress”, “Xinjiang”. The Development and Progress of Human Rights, and Building a Well-off Society in an All-round Way: A Glorious Chapter in the Development of Human Rights in China. Especially in June 2021, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, the white paper entitled “The Great Practice of the Communist Party of China in Respecting and Protecting Human Rights” comprehensively introduced the history, philosophy and achievements of the Communist Party of China in promoting the development of China’s human rights cause, and systematically explained the The great practice, distinctive features and world significance of China’s human rights development path.

There are no ready-made rules and regulations that can be copied to realize respect for human rights, protection of human rights and development of human rights in China. We must proceed from the reality of our country and follow our own path of human rights development. In this important speech, General Secretary Xi Jinping summarized the main features of China’s human rights development path from six aspects including “adhering to the leadership of the Communist Party of China”.

– “Uphold the leadership of the Communist Party of China”. Without the Communist Party of China, there would be no New China, and there would be no happy life for the Chinese people. The leadership of the Communist Party of China is the fundamental guarantee for the development of China’s human rights cause and for the Chinese people to enjoy fuller human rights. China’s human rights development path adheres to the unity of the leadership of the Communist Party of China, the socialist system, and respect for and protection of human rights. General Secretary Xi Jinping profoundly stated: “The leadership of the Communist Party of China and my country’s socialist system have determined the socialist nature of my country’s human rights cause, determined that we can ensure that the people are the masters of the country, adhere to the equal sharing of human rights, and insist on planning for human rights construction with systematic thinking. Promote the all-round development of all human rights, and continuously realize, maintain and develop the fundamental interests of the broadest masses of the people.”

– “Insist on respecting the dominant position of the people”. Whether a country’s human rights situation is good or not depends on whether the interests of its people are safeguarded, and whether people’s sense of gain, happiness, and security are enhanced. This is the most important criterion for testing a country’s human rights situation. General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized: “Take the people’s interests as the starting point and end point, constantly solve the most immediate and practical interests of the people, and strive to let the people live a happy life. This is the greatest human right.” The privileges enjoyed by a few people are universal human rights enjoyed by the broad masses of the people. We protect the people’s democratic rights, fully stimulate the enthusiasm, initiative and creativity of the people, make the people the main participants, facilitators and beneficiaries of the development of human rights, and effectively promote the all-round development of people and the common prosperity of all people. substantial progress.

– “Insist on starting from the reality of our country.” Different countries have different national conditions, historical cultures, social systems, and levels of economic and social development. They must and can only explore their own human rights development path based on their own actual conditions and people’s needs. Going away from reality and copying the system model of other countries will not only lead to dissatisfaction, but also bring catastrophic consequences. In the end, it is the people who will suffer. General Secretary Xi Jinping clearly pointed out: “The human rights development path of each country must be determined according to their own national conditions and the aspirations of their own people.” We combine the principle of universality of human rights with China’s reality, and proceed from our national conditions and people’s requirements to promote the development of human rights, and ensure that people follow the law The enjoyment of human rights that are broad, full, real, specific and effective.

——”Insist on the basic human rights with the right to subsistence and the right to development as the first priority”. The connotation of human rights is comprehensive and rich, and must be comprehensively implemented and systematically promoted. For developing countries, the rights to subsistence and development are the primary human rights. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out: “Survival is the basis for the enjoyment of all human rights, and a happy life for the people is the greatest human right.” We fully, accurately and comprehensively implement the new development concept, adhere to the people-centered development philosophy, and insist that development is for the people and development depends on The people and the fruits of development are shared by the people, focus on solving the most immediate and realistic interests of the people, focus on solving the problem of unbalanced and insufficient development, and strive to achieve higher quality, more efficiency, more fairness, more sustainable and more secure In the process of development, the people’s sense of gain, happiness and security will be more fulfilled, more secure and more sustainable.

– “Insist on protecting human rights in accordance with the law”. The rule of law is the basic way to govern a country, and human rights are the symbol of the progress of human civilization. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that “the rule of law is the most effective guarantee of human rights”. It is the firm will and unremitting pursuit of the Communist Party of China to comprehensively govern the country according to law, comprehensively improve the level of legal protection of human rights, and ensure that the people enjoy more full rights and freedoms. We insist that everyone is equal before the law, respect and protect human rights in all aspects of legislation, law enforcement, judiciary, and law-abiding, accelerate the improvement of a legal system that reflects fair rights, fair opportunities, and fair rules, protect citizens’ personal rights, property rights, and personality rights, and protect citizens Participate in democratic elections, democratic consultations, democratic decision-making, democratic management, democratic supervision and other basic political rights, protect citizens’ economic, cultural, social, environmental and other rights, and continuously improve the level of legal protection of human rights.

——“Insist on actively participating in global human rights governance”. The development of human rights is the common cause of all mankind and requires the joint efforts of all countries in the world. General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized: “All countries have the right to independently choose the path of human rights development. Different civilizations and countries should respect, tolerate, communicate and learn from each other.” We have always adhered to the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, and actively participated in global human rights governance. Carry forward the common values ​​of all mankind, practice genuine multilateralism, actively participate in the reform and construction of the global governance system including human rights, and promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind. Not only strive to improve the level of human rights development in the country, but also actively promote the development of the international human rights cause.

These “six insistences” are not only the main features of China’s human rights development, but also valuable experience in the development of my country’s human rights cause.

Promote the healthy development of my country’s human rights cause

“The Communist Party of China and the Chinese government adhere to the people-centered development philosophy, always put the people’s interests in the supreme position, take the people’s yearning for a better life as their goal, and continuously improve the level of respect and protection of the basic rights of the Chinese people. “

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, under the strong leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, and under the scientific guidance of Xi Jinping’s new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics, our party has led the people to achieve the first centenary goal as scheduled, and fulfilled its commitment to the people. and solemn promises made by history. Now, our party leads the people to embark on a new journey of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way and marching towards the second centenary goal, which is a new starting point for the development of China’s human rights cause. In this important speech, General Secretary Xi Jinping made key arrangements for promoting the healthy development of my country’s human rights cause from five aspects.

– “Promoting the all-round development of the cause of human rights”. On the new journey, how to promote the all-round development of the cause of human rights? General Secretary Xi Jinping put forward a clear request: “Adhere to China’s human rights development path, comply with the people’s expectations for a high-quality and beautiful life, continuously meet the people’s growing needs for rights in various aspects, and coordinate the promotion of economic development, democracy and the rule of law, ideology and culture, fairness and justice, Social governance, environmental protection and other constructions, comprehensively do a good job in employment, income distribution, education, social security, medical care, housing, pension, and child support, and coordinate development in material civilization, political civilization, spiritual civilization, social civilization, and ecological civilization. We will comprehensively improve the level of human rights protection in all aspects.”

– “Strengthen the protection of human rights and the rule of law”. The fundamental purpose of comprehensively governing the country according to law is to protect the rights and interests of the people in accordance with the law. General Secretary Xi Jinping put forward two requirements: First, deepen the reform of the rule of law, improve the legal protection mechanism for human rights, and realize the respect and protection of human rights in the entire chain, process and all-round coverage of legislation, law enforcement, justice, and law-abiding, so that the people can Fairness and justice are felt in a legal system, in every law enforcement decision, in every judicial case. The second is to systematically study, plan and solve the outstanding problems that the people have strongly expressed in the field of rule of law, treat the people’s demands fairly in accordance with the law, and resolutely prevent the occurrence of incidents that hurt the people’s feelings and damage the people’s rights and interests due to judicial injustice. The general secretary especially emphasized that “all acts that violate the lawful rights of the masses, and all phenomena that indifference to the rights and interests of the masses are ignored and ignored, must be seriously investigated and dealt with according to discipline and law, and resolutely held accountable.”

– “Promote the correct concept of human rights”. General Secretary Xi Jinping put forward requirements from six aspects: First, to widely carry out human rights publicity and knowledge dissemination, and create a good atmosphere for respecting and protecting human rights in the whole society. The second is to carry out education on human rights knowledge among all the people, especially young people, and incorporate the Marxist concept of human rights and the education of contemporary Chinese human rights into the national education system. The third is to strengthen human rights knowledge training for public officials, especially those at the grassroots level. Fourth, give full play to the advantages of group organizations to promote the protection of the rights and interests of specific groups such as women, children, the elderly, and the disabled. Fifth, relying on the vivid practice of the development of my country’s human rights cause, refine original concepts, and develop my country’s human rights discipline system, academic system, and discourse system. Sixth, strengthen the construction of human rights think tanks and human rights research bases, and focus on cultivating a group of high-end human rights experts with solid theories, excellent academic skills, familiarity with international rules, and can tell the story of human rights in China.

——“Actively promote global human rights governance”. General Secretary Xi Jinping has emphasized many times that the Chinese people are willing to work with people of other countries to uphold the common human values ​​of peace, development, fairness, justice, democracy and freedom, safeguard human dignity and rights, and promote the formation of a more just, reasonable and inclusive global human rights Governance, jointly build a community with a shared future for mankind, and create a better future for the world.

——“Actively carry out the international human rights struggle”. Human rights are historical, concrete and realistic, and human rights cannot be talked about without the social and political conditions and historical and cultural traditions of different countries. To evaluate whether a country has human rights, it cannot be judged by the standards of other countries, let alone double standards, or even use human rights as a political tool to interfere in other countries’ internal affairs. In recent years, some Western countries have had their own human rights issues increasingly prominent, but under the banner of so-called “universal human rights” and “human rights are higher than sovereignty”, they use human rights issues to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, leading to frequent wars and long-term social unrest in some countries. , people are displaced. General Secretary Xi Jinping clearly pointed out that on the issue of human rights, there is no need for “teachers” who are bossing other countries, let alone politicizing and instrumentalizing human rights issues, engaging in double standards, and using human rights as an excuse to interfere in other countries’ internal affairs. In this important speech, the General Secretary put forward four requirements: First, grasp the strategic initiative. The second is to focus on telling the story of human rights in China, and use visual and concrete expressions to enhance the attractiveness, appeal and influence of contemporary Chinese human rights views. The third is to maximize the international consensus on human rights and occupy the moral commanding heights of human rights. The fourth is to guide overseas Chinese companies to enhance their human rights awareness and self-confidence, and effectively deal with the abuse of human rights lawsuits planned by some Western countries.

Times are developing and human rights are progressing. In light of its own reality, China has embarked on a human rights development path that suits its own national conditions. Under the strong leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, and under the scientific guidance of Xi Jinping’s thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, the Chinese people will continue to write a new chapter in the cause of human rights in China, in order to enrich the diversity of human civilization and promote the development of the cause of human rights in the world Make a bigger contribution!
