Although countries have different understandings of human rights, the goal of achieving full human rights for all is the same. The participation of experts and scholars on human rights from China and Europe in this seminar will help to enhance the understanding and consensus of the east and west on the value of human rights and demonstrate the joint efforts of the international community to promote the cause of human rights in the world..
