The contemporary discourse regarding Human Rights in China is highly polarized and controversial. Whilst the Chinese constitution declares that “the State respects and preserves human rights [1]”, the Western governments do not agree on its theoretical interpretation nor implementation. Simultaneously, the project of liberal democracy and multiculturalism in the West is being questioned. The working theory of this research focuses on the main legal framework of the PRC and its practical and theoretical approach to the liberal concept of human rights.
