Abstract

Foreword
       From December 12 to 13, 2012, the China Society for Human Rights Studies and
   the China Foundation for Human Rights Development jointly held the 5th Beijing Forum
  on Human Rights. Senior human rights officials, experts and scholars from 32 countries
   and international organizations including Canada, UK, France, Australia, India, Belarus,
   Saudi Arabia, Mongolia, Thailand and UN, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, and more than
   100 representatives from Chinese science and technology and environmental protection
   demonstration cities and units attended the forum.
        This forum was themed "Science, Technology, Environment and Human Rights," and
  had three sub-themes: "Scientific and Technological Development and Human Rights,"
  "Environment and Human Rights" and "Era of Information and Human Rights." All
  attendants thought that this forum held against the backdrop that the Communist Party of
 China stuck to the "people first" Scientific Outlook on Development, added "respecting
 and protecting human rights" to the CPC Constitution and established the goal of "fully
 respecting and protecting human rights" for completing the building of a moderately
 prosperous society in all respects was of great significance. The theme of this forum
  keeps abreast of the times and is of important realistic significance. Properly handling the
 relationships between science and technology, environment and human rights is a major
 topic of global concern and a common issue facing mankind. Environment is an important
  basis for human survival, scientific and technological progress is a powerful force promoting
 the development of human rights undertakings, and realizing all-round development
 and beneficial interaction of science and technology, environment and human rights is a
 fundamental guarantee for improving human life quality and promoting human happiness.
 Attendants carried out extensive, in-depth and warm discussions on the theme of the forum,
 and achieved fruitful results.
     This forum received more than 70 papers, which have been classified into four
categories according to their themes and compiled into this book. Views expressed in
various papers in this book are only expressions of the authors' personal opinions and do not
represent the views and opinions of the China Society for Human Rights Studies.
