I. Concept of People’s Livelihood in Traditional Chinese Culture

The concept of human rights was borrowed from the West. In order to have it become rooted in China, people needed to find traces in Chinese culture on which the human rights theoretical system could be based and the Chinese human rights idea could be realized. Only if the idea of human rights is grounded in Chinese culture can the concept of human rights be understood by the people and human rights be earnestly respected and ensured. By doing this, China can be more confident of its human rights development, both in domestic protection and international exchange, learning from the good experience of other countries and further developing itself.
