Luo Haocai, President of China Society for Human Rights Studies

This session of the Forum has the theme, “The Chinese Dream: New Progress in the Cause of Human Rights in China.” This theme concentrates on such important subtopics as “The Chinese Dream and Human Rights,” “Innovation in National Governance and Human Rights Protection,” “Cross-cultural International Exchanges on Human Rights” and “Anti-terrorism and Human Rights Protection,” all of which generally relate to the entire society. The theme of this session has both Chinese characteristics and an international perspective. It is full of the spirit of the times and closely related to the pulse of development. It is expected to boost the continual deepening of research into human rights and the constant improvement of human rights protection.

The Chinese dream is an important guideline and a significant governing philosophy put forward by General Secretary Xi Jinping since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC). The fulfillment of the Chinese dream is just the realization of the great revival of the Chinese nation, and the actualization of the country’s prosperity, the nation’s rejuvenation and people’s happiness. The Chinese dream is the dream of the country, the nation and the people. The people are the very subject for the achievement of the Chinese dream, and the creator, pursuer and beneficiary of the Chinese dream. The Chinese dream has both its deep roots and fundamental goal in the people. In addition, the Chinese dream is a social goal and vision embracing human rights concepts, claims and values.

With the call of the Chinese dream, we have been advancing along the road to the construction of socialism with Chinese characteristics, with various systems increasingly improved, and the cause of human rights achieving new progress.
