China’s first human rights education and training base was opened in Tianjin’s Nankai University Sunday, chinanews.com reported.
The university will advance its current human rights courses and have three additional courses on human rights each year to complete the system. It also vowed to provide human rights training to society.
Luo Haocai, head of China’s Human Rights Research Society, said the base will beef up China’s human rights theories, bring up more professional human rights workers and enhance peoples' awareness of human rights.
Luo said there will be more human rights bases in China. Three universities are currently approved to engage in human rights training and education. They are Nankai university in Tianjin, China University of Political Science and Law in Beijing and Guangzhou University in Guangdong province.
