  Taking the people's happy life as the greatest human right, it is a vivid and concrete manifestation of the people-centered development thought applied in the field of human rights.

  [Explanation] Recently, Wang Xigen, Dean of the Human Rights Law Research Institute of Huazhong University of Science and Technology, accepted an exclusive interview with China News Agency's "East and West Questions".

Wang Xigen said that in the practice of promoting the development of human rights, China has creatively put forward the important conclusion that "the people's happy life is the greatest human right".

  Human rights are ultimately to be possessed, consumed and acquired for every specific common person, so the sense of acquisition of the people is the most important criterion for judging whether they truly enjoy human rights, not written in laws or regulations, or hang on our mouths.

  [Explanation] Wang Xigen said that human rights are a complex system, including the right to life, the right to health, the right to personal freedom, the right to freedom of speech, as well as economic, social, cultural, environmental and many other rights.

In the process of safeguarding the people's most important human right, a happy life, China adheres to the basic human rights with the right to subsistence and development as the first priority, and puts the right to life and health first.

  How to sort, in different times, under different cultural backgrounds, there are different ideas and arrangements.

Imagine if a person has no life, even basic health, what human rights are there?

  [Explanation] Wang Xigen said that adhering to the people-centered approach, taking the people's happy life as the greatest human right, insisting that the right to subsistence and development are the primary basic human rights, is China's original human rights concept and human rights experience contributed to the world's human rights cause.

It is precisely based on these human rights concepts and experiences that China has moved from poverty to food and clothing, to building a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way, and then to building a modern socialist country in an all-round way, which has a good demonstration effect on the vast number of developing countries.

  China has a population of more than 1 billion, accounting for about a quarter of the world's population. Solving China's human rights issues is itself a huge contribution to all mankind.

Take poverty alleviation as an example. After so many years of poverty alleviation and targeted poverty alleviation, China has completely eliminated absolute poverty and contributed more than 70% to the world's poverty reduction.

One country has completed 70% of the world's poverty reduction task, which is a miracle in the world and a miracle in the history of human rights.

  [Explanation] In addition, China has also fully shared poverty reduction experience and practice with the international community, and has always provided medical, education, technology, projects and other assistance to the vast number of developing countries within its capacity to help them improve their human rights.
