Chaos of human rights prizes

22/10/2015


Recent years, more and more Vietnamese people have been rewarded with international prizes. By their talent and intelligence, Vietnamese people have brought honor to the country through world prestigious awards. From famous people’s artist Dang Thai Son, mathematician Ngo Bao Chau, talented chess player Le Quang Liem, etc to thousands of students and pupils who have gain high prizes in many competitions like Olympics, they are all our country’s pride. In opposition, some “so-called international prizes” awarded by some foreign organizations for individuals who have committed crimes in Vietnam, do not bring any honor to the country but even undermine the country’s image in eyes of international friends. These so-called international prizes are largely human rights ones which are awarded by self-proclaimed human rights organizations.
 Nowadays, human rights is raising to be a hot debated issue by some countries which want to impose their influences and try to use human rights as an excuse to pressure countries that resist their interference. Difference in viewpoint of human rights is due to many different reasons about culture, education, political system, outlook on life, etc. Therefore, the U.S. and Western policy of imposing their human rights values has been criticized by many countries for intervening to attain political goals.
 When judging human rights records, we need to look at achievements which states have brought to their people. Imposing human rights to get political, economic or religious goals is a fact that Western experts must admit. The U.S. and the West have exploited the UN International Declaration on Human rights passed in 1948 to support their foreign policies on human rights, but even that, they still have to ignore principles in the Declaration on civil and political rights that show human rights must bear limitation of laws.
 Clashes from different view on human rights values promise to be a lingering conflict, and one of means used in the human rights warfare is offering human rights prizes. Even, the Nobel Peace Prize which has been awarded annually to those who have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses, now has been distorted by human rights warfare. Experts said the Nobel Peace Prize has derailed from its primitive missions. Unlike its fellow prizes, the Nobel Peace Prize’s aims are expressly political. According to Deputy Professor Ronald R.Krebs on Foreign Policy magazine in US, between 1946 and 1970, the prize was awarded twice (9.5 percent of the time) to domestic dissidents, between 1971 and 2008, it was given 10 times (21 percent) for this purpose, all the winners are not recognized to have substantial contributions to interstate or intrastate peace.
 The situation is same to Vietnam, many prizes given to Vietnamese people go with political goals, especially human rights ones. Never before, so many human rights prizes have been awarded to Vietnamese political dissidents like shower. We can count human rights prizes for individuals who protest against Vietnam such as Hellman/Hammet awarded by Human Rights Watch, Stephanus Prize of German International Association on Human Rights, Gruber international prize of International Association of Lawyers, Gwangju Human rights prize; Human rights prize of Vietnam Human Rights Network, Sakharov human rights prize of  the European Parliament,… These prizes, if not for reactionary organizations like Viet Tan, Vietnam’s Democratic Party… and western communication stations like VOA, BBC, RFA, RFI… and some hostile blogs and social networks, known by no one. Do you see them familiar?
Those individuals who were awarded or nominated are Vietnamese reactionary elements like Thich Quang Do, Nguyen Van Ly, Duong Thu Huong, Le Thi Cong Nhan,… For that reason, these human rights prizes just aim for individuals who conduct anti-government activities. It is totally against fundamental principles listed in international documents on human rights./.

These so-called international prizes are largely human rights, religions, democracy, freedom of press... which are awarded by self-proclaimed human rights organizations.

Clashes from different view on human rights values promise to be a lingering conflict and will be an excuse for power countries to set influence on small ones.

Many prizes given to Vietnamese people go with political goals, especially human rights ones, there's no pride in these.

Looking those faces who have been awarded prizes, I can't see any of them have contributed for the country's prosperity.

any one understand that humanright international organizations intend to use so-called human right prizes as a tool against goverments that they allege violating freedom of democracy and human rights

Funny Day 23/10/15 05:41

why do those organizations award the prizes to those who violate the law and act against their own country?

Dennis White 23/10/15 05:42

Williams Melanie 23/10/15 05:47

many countries have voiced strong opposition to the rewarding of those prizes, but those organizations haven't still given up their illegal action

Elizabeth Green 23/10/15 05:54

the awarding of so-called human right prizes to those who have committed crimes in Vietnam is aimed at inciting their activities against the country
