Human Rights Protection and the Rule of Law under Socialism with Chinese Characteristics
 
GU Chunde*
 
Abstract: The rule of law is a basic method for governing a state and symbolizes modern civilization. The rule of law in socialism with Chinese characteristics is deeply rooted in Chinese tradition, and is designed and led by the Communist Party of China (CPC). The rule of law is not only a means and method, but also a driving force and leading engine for the country. Chinese human rights are designed and led by the CPC and possess certain characteristics in terms of theory, path and system. They are in essence different from the Western rule of law and human rights. Human rights are the fundamental value and the ultimate goal of the rule of law and the rule of law is the confirmation and guarantee for human rights. Efforts should be made to promote legislative, law enforcement and judicial protection of human rights.

Construction of the rule of law is closely associated with human rights. The theme, goal and core values of construction of the rule of law are the protection of human rights and such protection will definitely push forward and improve construction of the rule of law. Therefore, we should not blindly talk about reliance on the rule of law and construction of the rule of law while not paying attention to human rights protection. Also, we should not just highlight human rights protection while disregarding building the rule of law. We should also comprehensively advance judicial protection for human rights.
