Enhancing Humanism in the Construction of the Constitutional Government of China

Wei CUI, Yexun HU


Constructing a constitutional government is the path of the development of modern democracy, but China is different from the West in implementing the constitution. So China has a different result and the reason is that our society lacks humanism of the modern sense. Now we need to understand the core of humanism, set up correct views on freedom and equality, and improve the construction of constitutional government in China.
