The Principles of Constitutional Equal Rights and the Implementation Mechanisms

Hao LI


The equal right is from the respects of the human dignity. It constitutes the core elements of justice. The equal rights was a prerequisite for achieving other important fundamental rights, it has a dual nature as a broad application of the constitutional principles and a definitive statement of fundamental rights. The implementation mechanisms of the equal rights are divided into the direct “constitutional equal protection” and the indirect “legal prohibition of discrimination” explanations. In order to strengthen the implementation of the constitutional equal rights in China, it needs to perfect the system of the constitutional review and the legal system of anti-discrimination.
