Initiatives contribute to human rights governance

China has proposed the Global Development Initiative, the Global Security Initiative and the Global Civilization Initiative, which can help solve the problems associated with human rights protection and improve global human rights governance.

Examining the logical relationship between the core elements of the three global initiatives, it can be seen that security is a prerequisite for development, as without a peaceful environment, development would be impossible. Development is the foundation of security and civilizations, as only through development and prosperity can peace be sustainable and civilization progress. And civilization is the result of security and development, and can also provide spiritual support for security and development.

The three initiatives not only complement each other, but also are inseparable from each other. Together, they have the capacity to improve global human rights governance and strengthen the global human rights cause.

As the proposer and implementer of the three global initiatives, China not only focuses on improving the lives and livelihoods of the Chinese people, but also endeavors to help improve the well-being of humanity as a whole, providing important practical experience and guidance for promoting global human rights governance and building a community with a shared future for mankind.

Development promotes human rights, facilitating the resolution of global issues. Security safeguards human rights, ensuring global peace. Cooperation promotes human rights and helps build a new form of civilization.

To improve global human rights governance, it is necessary to pool the efforts of all parties. Government departments, international organizations, experts and scholars committed to strengthening the global human rights cause should boost communication, enhance mutual trust and seek common ground while reserving their differences.

Countries across the world need to work together to protect and promote human rights, and advance civilizations while adhering to the principles of diversity, independence, openness and inclusiveness.

They also need to promote the common human values of peace, development, fairness, justice, democracy and freedom, and strive to build an inclusive global human rights governance system, so as to better protect human rights.
