Human Rights and EU-China Relations

(p.115) Chapter 6 Human Rights and EU-China Relations
Europe and China
Roland Vogt

Disagreements over human rights are a highly contested issue in EU-China relations. At stake are not only diverging interpretations of human rights, but also the efficacy of Europe's human rights advocacy. What results have EU-China dialogues on human rights led to? The EU's 'carrot and stick' approach to the promotion of human rights, the rule of law, and democracy has yielded moderate results on issues like the death penalty, administrative detention, the protection of civil and political rights, as well as religious freedom and minority rights. European financial and technical support, as well as diplomatic pressure, rather than shaming, has proven more effective to elicit a gradual improvement in China's record on human rights.
