|about this site|
The content of this website is jointly authored by the Irish Centre for Human Rights, at the National University of Ireland, Galway; and the Institute of Law, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
The site aims to serve a number of purposes: it should function as a means of communication between the participating institutions of the EU-China Human Rights Network; as a means to disseminate the results of Network events; and as a resource for persons working on or studying human rights and China, or the cooperation initiatives of the European Commission.
Since 1997 China has been engaged in a human rights dialogue with the European Union. This process of cooperation and interaction on the question of human rights is now complemented by the activities of the EU-China Human Rights Network, a project funded by the European Commission.
The EU-China Human Rights Network is led by the Irish Centre for Human Rights, in cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Beijing.
The over-arching aim of the project is to provide China with human rights expertise at the highest academic level in order to support the process of ratification of the ICCPR and the implementation of both human rights covenants within China. The Network enables European human rights specialists to share expertise with their counterparts in China, as part of a two-way exchange of experience and views. Activities include Network Seminars, research, development of training materials, delivery of training and other follow-up activities, as well as a series of exchanges and internships.
In addition to these independent activities, the Network also has responsibility for organisation of the twice-yearly EU-China Human Rights Dialogue Seminars, on behalf of the European Commission, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Presidency of the European Union.
Full documentation on Network events will be posted on this site, together with information and reports on Dialogue Seminars.
The EU-China Human Rights Network is funded by the European Commission. The opinions, findings and conclusions expressed in materials on this site do not necessarily represent the views of the European Commission.
