Drawing on little-known sources, Marina Svensson argues that the concept of human rights was invoked by the Chinese people well before the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, and it has continued to have strong appeal after 1949, both in Taiwan and on the mainland. These largely forgotten debates provide important perspectives on and contrasts to the official PRC line. The author gives particular attention to the issues of power and agency in describing the widely divergent views of official spokespersons, establishment intellectuals and dissidents. Until recently the PRC dismissed human rights as a bourgeois slogan, yet the globalization of human rights and the growing importance of the issue in bilateral and multilateral relations has grown. Thus, the regime has been forced to embrace, or rather appropriate, the language of human rights, an appropriation that continues to be vigorously challenged by dissidents at home and abroad.

Debating Human Rights

Authors: Peter Van Ness

Type: BOOK - Published: 2003-07-13 - Publisher: Routledge
Human rights debates can provoke strong reactions, particularly among people of different cultural backgrounds. The debate over Asian values and the use of human rights diplomacy are the most obvious manifestations of divisions between Asia and the West and reflect particular world views and historical legacies. In this new book, scholars from the United States and several Asian countries debate fundamental issues such as 'Asian values', 'peaceful evolution' and cultural imperialism. Provocative and challenging essays analyse the debate between East and West, presenting critical perspectives on globalization and human rights diplomacy. Debating Human Rights is an original contribution to a vital area of debate. It presents a uniquely wide diversity of perspectives on controversial issues and demonstrates how scholars and activists who view the world very differently can nonetheless move these debates forward in a search for common ground.
Human Rights in Asia
Language: en
Pages: 254
Authors: Damien Kingsbury, Leena Avonius
Categories: Law
Type: BOOK - Published: 2008-09-15 - Publisher: Palgrave MacMillan
This book offers a critical reassessment of the "Asian values" debate, which dominated the human rights discourse in the late 1990s, and a reappraisal of the human rights situation in Asia sincethen. In this book Asian and non-Asian scholars contextualize the "Asian values" debate and examine in what ways the issues raised then continue to trouble Asian societies. Human rights are seen both in the context of political developments in individual Asian countries as well as in relation to global issues such as the Global War on Terror. The book challenges the reader to critically examine human rights rhetoric and practice both in Asia and globally.

Political Rights in Post-Mao China
Language: en
Pages: 76
Authors: Merle Goldman
Categories: China
Type: BOOK - Published: 2007 - Publisher: Key Issues in Asian Studies
Political Rights in Post-Mao China provides an engaging overview of political changes in China in the later decades of the twentieth century and early years of the twenty-first century, highlighting the growing rights consciousness movement among China's citizens. Professor Goldman explains how demands for Party reform and the increasingly organized struggle for democracy and political rights have spread from their beginnings among China's urban intellectuals to mass demonstrations held by workers, farmers, and the growing middle class. China's moves toward a free market economy have provided these various groups with access to new technologies--including the Internet and cell phones--that help organize their political protests. This book is invaluable to anyone wishing to understand the political dynamics of reform-era China and will appeal to teachers and students of many disciplines--including anthropology, Asian studies, geography, government, history, philosophy, political science, religion, and sociology.
