On June 24, the Information Office of the State Council issued the white paper "the great practice of the Communist Party of China in respecting and protecting human rights", which systematically explained the achievements of the Communist Party of China in respecting and protecting human rights in the past 100 years. On the same day, the Information Office of the State Council held a briefing to introduce the CPC's concept and practice of respecting and protecting human rights and answer questions from reporters.
"The Communist Party of China was born for the cause of human rights, and it is also growing stronger and stronger because of the cause of human rights." Lu Guangjin, Secretary General of the China Human Rights Research Association and professor of Law School of Jilin University, introduced from 3 aspects that China has achieved tremendous achievements in human rights under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party: creating new achievements in respect and protection of human rights, building a new concept of human respect and protection of human rights, and opening up a new world for human rights civilization. Without the Communist Party, there would be no achievements in China's human rights cause today. At present, under the firm leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, the Chinese people are striving to achieve the goal of the second hundred years and realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. China's human rights protection will surely reach a new height and achieve new and greater achievements. Lu Guangjin said.
China has been committed to promoting the development of human rights in the world and has done a lot of work. China's one belt, one road initiative, and the "one road initiative" proposed by He Zhipeng, director of the Law School of Jilin University and executive director of the center for human rights research, have made contributions to the development of the world's human rights cause.
When a reporter asked what key work the judiciary has done in protecting human rights, Li Xiao, a first-class inspector of the Research Office of the Supreme People's court, said that respecting and protecting human rights has always been a main line in the work of the people's court. Li Xiao summed up the efforts of judicial organs in protecting human rights with several key words: judicial reform, judicial responsibility system, case registration system, protection of the right to defense, judicial openness, the right to a fair trial and judicial relief. In these aspects, China has made great achievements“ Centering on the goal of making the people feel fair and just in every judicial case, the judicial organs adhere to the principle of justice for the people, justice, and legal protection of the legitimate rights and interests of the parties, and constantly enhance the people's sense of acquisition, happiness, and security. " Li Xiao said.
"With the mission of people's Liberation and happiness, the Communist Party of China has continuously explored the national system to realize people's freedom and equality in the past 100 years." In response to a reporter's question, Zhang Wanhong, executive director of the Institute of human rights of Wuhan University, said that people's happy life is the greatest human right. Everyone, regardless of gender, age and other factors, can develop themselves and contribute to society with dignity, and share the opportunity to make a brilliant life and realize their dreams.
"When we talk about human rights, what we emphasize is to adhere to the principle of universality of human rights. At the same time, we oppose the universal concept of human rights. " Lu Guangjin said, "we mainly adhere to three principles in developing the cause of human rights: first, we adhere to the principle of universality of human rights. We have signed and ratified a number of human rights conventions and abide by the universal requirements of international human rights. Secondly, from the reality of our country, from the national conditions, we can not simply copy. In addition, the "teacher" who opposes human rights talks about human rights, plays the card of human rights and uses human rights as a "big stick."
"We should unswervingly adhere to the party's leadership, the socialist system, respect and protection of human rights, and promote development in a coordinated manner." Lu Guangjin said.
