Luo Haocai, president of CSHRS said it was essential to going out for we can learn the experiences and situations of other countries as well as introduce how we study and develop human rights in these years so as to we can construct multiple cooperation.
Scholars from both sides agreed that human rights development in different countries and regions, different cultural backgrounds were faced with different problems and challenges. The diversity of human rights development shall be respected.
Chang Jian, vice director of Nankai University Human Rights Research Center said western voices dominated world human rights field.
