2022 Beijing Forum on Human Rights Focuses on Working Together towards Fairer, More Equitable, Reasonable and Inclusive Global Human Rights Governance

Aug. 4, 2022 -- The 2022 Beijing Forum on Human Rights was held in Beijing on July 26, 2022. About 200 senior officials, researchers and diplomats from nearly 70 countries and international organizations attended the event.
Themed "Working Together towards Fairer, More Equitable, Reasonable and Inclusive Global Human Rights Governance," the forum is co-organized by the China Society for Human Rights Studies (CSHRS) and the China Foundation for Human Rights Development (CFHRD).
Huang Mengfu, chairman of the CFHRD, said the theme of this year's forum is in line with the common aspiration of mankind to strengthen and improve global human rights governance in today's world.
Noting that the international human rights order and the foundation of good governance are facing serious challenges due to unilateralism and power politics of a few countries, Huang stressed that global human rights governance should be promoted with mutual consultation and the joint wisdom and efforts of countries.
Similar views were also expressed by foreign participants, including Danilo Turk, former president of Slovenia.
Turk said that cooperation should take precedence over competition and confrontation, not only as a political and developmental requirement, but also a requirement for the development of human rights.
Akmal Kholmatovich Saidov, first deputy speaker of the Legislative Chamber of the Oliy Majlis of Uzbekistan and director of the National Human Rights Center of the Republic of Uzbekistan, said that there is no universal development model that applies to all countries, and strengthening international cooperation is essential for the full realization of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Only on the basis of respecting human rights, democracy and the rule of law can we usher in a world of stability, sustainable development and prosperity, he said.
Bhofal Chambers, speaker of the House of Representatives of Liberia, said the Chinese government and people have made and continue to make valuable contributions toward the promotion and maintenance of global human rights, which appear in various forms, shapes and approaches.
"China has been one of Liberia's strongest development partners when it comes to meeting the socioeconomic development needs of the Liberian people, especially women and children. China's support in this area comes in the form of mitigating the challenges of health and sanitation, equipment and materials for skills training programs and food distribution to struggling mothers, especially single parents," Chambers said.
John Ross, former director of Economic and Business Policy of London and currently a senior fellow of Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies under Renmin University of China, summarized China's human rights philosophy as one that focuses on practical results.
China's philosophy has achieved remarkable results in eliminating absolute poverty, safeguarding women's rights and interests, and ensuring people's right to life and health under the COVID-19 pandemic, said Ross, adding that the progress has made great contributions to improving the global human rights situation. 
Li Junru, former vice president of the Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, said that China is willing to share the experience of human rights protection with the world and work together to promote global human rights governance in a fairer, more equitable, reasonable and inclusive way.
This year's Beijing Forum on Human Rights sets five parallel sessions with the themes of Sustainable Development and Human Rights Protection, Democracy and Human Rights Protection, Public Health Security and Human Rights Protection, Multilateralism and Global Human Rights Governance, and Open and Inclusive Development and Human Rights Protection. 
First held in 2008, the Beijing Forum on Human Rights has become an international event and this year comes the tenth one. It provides a platform for experts and scholars from China and abroad to communicate with each other on human rights and offers Chinese wisdom and solutions in promoting fairer, more equitable, reasonable and inclusive global human rights governance.
