China No Longer Shy on Human Rights

Professor Tom Zwart recently visited China, where he had the opportunity to address the Human Rights situation and the progress made by China since its ratification of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In an interview on Chinese national television's CNTV's Dialogue, Professor Zwart addressed the possibility of bridging the divide between the universality of human rights to Chinese culture and society.

  1. Clearly ratifying and/or signing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights means absolutely nothing. The Convention against Torture and Other Cruel Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Publishment (CAT) was ratified in 1988! The Universal Declaration of Human Rights can be likened to the "...piece of paper..." that Hitler signed. Unfortunately it isn't just the CCP who don't care...the United Nations don't care either. At least there is a global consistency that we can all understand, and those of us who do care, can take in to consideration.
