On several occasions since 2016, Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed the importance of China's active participation in the international efforts to reform the system of global governance. Written by a group of prominent Chinese scholars and officials, the China and Global Governance Series aims to present the international readers with China's approach to global governance and the Chinese wisdom behind it. In the ten titles forming this series, the authors elaborate on China's perspectives on global governance, peace, and development, as well as seven other important aspects of global governance—financial security, energy security, climate change management, foreign aid, cybersecurity, human rights protection, and anti-terrorism.

The history of human rights development is also that of the evolution of modern human civilization. As much as the achievements in this area have been gratifying, the problems and challenges are also worth our reflection. As a major emerging country, China has not always charted its own path in the development and protection of human rights. Although the journey has been arduous and frustrating, China has made remarkable achievements. At present, China’s human rights practices, stories, and propositions provide a different way of thinking to the world, and the Chinese experience in human rights development contributes a different model for human rights work.
