Question of: Human Rights in China

Submitted by: Brazil

Accepting that the People’s Republic of China (China) is a very powerful economic country with a huge population of around 1.35 billion,

Having voted in favour of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948 along with the ROC,

Citing the 1968 United Nations International Conference on Human Rights who stated unequivocally that the UDHR constitutes an obligation for the members of the international community,

Concerned that China has been accused violating numerous articles of the UDHR such as Articles 1, 5, 6, 7, 9, 18, 19 and 21,

Noting with deep concern that the last five Human Rights Reports published by Amnesty International have shown growing concern in the upholding of Human Rights in China,

Aware of China’s alliance with North Korea whom also have been accused of violating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,

Observing that many statistics such as the number of people executed in China have not been made available to the UN,

Desiring an end to the “Re-Education Through Labour” scheme employed by the Chinese Police,

Believing that the reported problems should be thoroughly studied by United Nations representatives before any serious action is taken,

Further believing that measures taken against China should apply equally to all nations,

  1. Strongly suggests that ‘Human Rights Monitors’ be assembled in all 193 countries in the United Nations;
  2. Declares that the number of Monitors stationed in a country would be proportional to the size of that nation’s population;
  3. Further declares that the safety and protection of the Monitors will be catered for by their host nations;
  4. Proclaims that the Monitors will be;
    1. subjected to laws and regulations to be assembled by the United Nations,
    2. exempt from any laws of the country in which they are situated,
  5. Recommends that the number of executed criminals in every nation be freely available to the United Nations;
  6. Urges that all nations of the United Nations request that the “Re-Education Through Labour” system in China become a judicial punishment and not a police-administered punishment;
  7. Requests that China ratify their signature of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights;
  8. Remains confident that any evidence of Human Rights abuses discovered by Monitors in any nation will lead to prosecutions of government officials by the International Criminal Court.
