China sets example in protecting right to development
Dec. 14, 2017 -- The 6th Cross-cultural Human Rights Seminar was held from December 3 to 6 in Qingdao, east China’s Shandong Province.
Professor Kamba, professor of law at University of South Africa, gave an introduction of the human rights conditions, especially the right to development, in Africa.
Kamba said that the Chinese government has been dedicated to both theory and practice of the right to development under the people-oriented governing philosophy.
The fact that China has lifted more than 700 million people out of poverty in the past 30 years is a huge success. The Chinese people are enjoying the right to development and China is taking the lead in promoting the right to development among Southern countries, said Kamba.
“The right to development should be fully guaranteed both in developing and developed countries, especially in Southern courtiers,” said Krishnan, an expert with International Court of Justice in Hague, Netherlands. “One of China’s most remarkable achievements is getting rid of poverty for millions of people, which inspires Southern countries with confidence.”
Angie Ricca, a law major from the University of Nottingham, said that the right to development in some developing countries often gets interference and obstruction from some developed countries. China has set a good example in guaranteeing people’s right to development.
China has contributed to the realization of the right to development in Southern countries through providing Chinese wisdom and experience. China will play a more active role in promoting the right to development in the future, said Dr. Cao Shengwen with the School of law at Shandong University.
