June 29, 2018 -- A human rights seminar sought consensus among more than 60 Chinese and European experts in the field in a meeting with the theme of better understanding and deeper cooperation among diverse civilizations.
The Europe-China Seminar on Human Rights, established by the China Society for Human Rights Studies in 2015, opened on Thursday at the College of Europe, a postgraduate institute of European studies in Bruges, Belgium.
It serves as a platform to promote dialogue, in-depth exchanges and understanding between China and Europe, organizers said.
Joerg Monar, rector of the College of Europe, said the seminar "fits the mission of the college", which looks for fundamental rights protection inside and outside Europe.
Monar said Bruges, a city known for its bridges, is the ideal place to build bridges in communication between China and Europe.
Xian Weiyi, minister-counselor of Chinese Mission to the European Union, said the goal is to gain a better understanding between China and the EU of each other's theories and practices of human rights.
