The Implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in the People's Republic of China
The Implementation of the Convention Against Torture (CAT) in the People's Republic of China
Implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in the People's Republic of China
Implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in the People's Republic of China
The Convention on the Rights of the Child spells out the basic human rights that children everywhere have: the right to survival; to develop to the fullest; to protection from harmful influences, abuse and exploitation; and to participate fully in family, cultural and social life. The four core principles of the Convention are non-discrimination; devotion to the best interests of the child; the right to life, survival and development; and respect for the views of the child.
Implementation of the International Convenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) in the People's Republic of China
Economic, social and cultural rights are fully recognized by the international community and throughout international human rights law. Although these rights have received less attention than civil and political rights, far more serious consideration than ever before is currently being devoted to them. The question is not whether these rights are basic human rights, but rather what entitlements they imply and the legal nature of the obligations of States to realize them.
These rights are designed to ensure the protection of people as full persons, based on a perspective in which people can enjoy rights, freedoms and social justice simultaneously.
Implementation of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) in the People's Republic of China
The Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) is the body of independent experts that monitors implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination by its State parties.
