Our work in this area examines how China is engaging with international law, including the international human rights system.

Through dialogue between Chinese public international lawyers and their non-Chinese counterparts, this project explores Chinese thinking on the content and direction of international law and considers the implications for global governance. How has China’s approach to international human rights law and the UN human rights mechanism evolved? To what extent does China engage with international dispute settlement mechanisms, whether in relation to maritime boundaries or trade agreements?
