BEIJING - The Chinese public have become more familiar with human rights, said a report on China's human rights development, or the annual human rights blue book.
"The social atmosphere of respecting and ensuring human rights has gradually ripened," said the report, released Wednesday by the China Society for Human Rights Studies (CSHRS).
The CSHRS, which was established in 1993, conducted the country's largest ever survey on the public's understanding of human rights, according to the report which has been released annually since 2011.
The report focuses on the latest development of China's human rights cause and the significance of the national human rights action plans.
It contains sections like "economic, social and cultural rights","citizen and political rights","human rights protection for vulnerable groups" and "legislation and international cooperation."
The report covers citizen's employment, privacy, environment and litigation rights, the countryside's poverty alleviation and exploitation, land use and legal aid rights, the protection of prisoners' rights, human rights legislation and rights protection in law enforcement.
