Author: Xue Hanqin
Built on the theme “history, culture and international law”, this special course gives a comprehensive review of China’s contemporary perspective and practice of international law in the past 60 years, with its focus on the recent 30 years when China is gradually integrated into international legal system through its opening up and economic reform process. After an in-depth revisit of China’s position on sovereignty and non-interference from a historical and cultural perspective, the author further explores a few areas of importance where China’s viewpoints often invite general interest: human rights, sustainable development, and multilateralism and regional cooperation.
