Since the reform and opening-up period began in China in late 1978, the Communist Party of China (CPC) has led the Chinese people to combine the Marxist theory of human rights with real conditions, the characteristics of the times, the historical traditions and the culture of human rights in China, in a bid to solve the “special” issues of China’s human rights development, continue to achieve theoretical innovation, and promote the healthy development of China’s human rights cause. The major theoretical innovation has been the elucidation of correct theoretical principles about the development of human rights in China and lessons learned from it,i.e., the Marxist theory of human rights in China. It embodies the Party’s achievements of several generations of collective leadership since the beginning of the reform and opening-up period in exploring the formation of human rights practices. It is a rich theoretical system and has distinctive theoretical characteristics of great significance to the practice and theory of human rights.
