This study focuses on the Universal Periodic Review of the United Nations Human Rights Council in order to investigate the impact of China’s official human rights position on international human rights discourses. China’s Review, including its National Report, the Chinese Government’s reactions to statements and recommendations on its domestic human rights situation as well as its statements and recommendations on other states under review are investigated in order to find out whether China is able to project successfully its official human rights view on the international arena.
