  • Pinghua Sun EMAIL logo

Abstract

Duansheng Qian was a renowned scholar in the period of the Republic of China who studied in depth and at length the legal systems of different countries. His discourse constitutes a rich treasure of political and legal thought and numerous ideas on human rights. Much of his discourse touches on the concept of protecting human rights. A study of Qian’s works reveals the breadth and width of his ideas on human rights that form an important part of Chinese concepts on human rights. Many of these concepts are of great historical and practical significance.
