Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly introduces the development of human rights discourse in China and the basic structure of Chinese legal education. The Raoul Wallenberg Institute (RWI) is one of the pioneers who have offered very active and significant roles for Chinese scholars and practitioners in promoting human rights education and research in China. It is essential for Chinese human rights scholars to further strengthen their self-supporting and sustainable capacity in human rights education from now on. The contributions and inputs from foreign human rights institutions have played significant and even vital roles, of which the activities of the RWI are a very successful example. The promotion of the awareness of International human rights standards among politicians, law makers, law enforcement personnel, academia, the judiciary and a population as large as that in China, can therefore also be regarded as one of the RWI's contributions to the Decade for Human Rights Education.

Keywords: Chinese legal education; human rights; International human rights standards; Raoul Wallenberg Institute (RWI); scholars
