Vietnam’s human rights achievement after 30 years of the Doi Moi

19/02/2016
For 30 years after the Doi Moi (renovation), Vietnam has gained many achievements on all aspects, especially on human rights and social werfares. Let look back these encouraging goals!
Vietnam has spent almost 40 years at war over the past seven decades, but is finally living in a state of peace and development. The country’s accomplishments in guaranteeing people’s right to an adequate standard of living, citing the national poverty rate has dropped dramatically to merely 4.8 percent from 60 percent in the 1990s.
Vietnam’s achievements in human rights over the past 30 years in various areas, helping to bring a life of comfort and happiness for each of Vietnamese citizens. Vietnam has been consistent in its policies to better respect and promote civil rights and freedom.
The ultimate revolutionary goal of the Vietnam Communist Party throughout the national people’s democratic revolution and the Doi Moi and international integration process is to ensure human rights. The State has set up the mechanisms and policies to ensure the implementation and prevent any infringement of any human rights.
Nowadays, under the socialist regime in Vietnam, human rights have been improved in both quality and quantity. Throughout the Party’s national congresses, including the 12th Congress recently,  the Party affirmed the importance of building the socialist democracy and state power belongs to the people. Especially, “constructing a socialist state ruled by law and of the People, by the People and for the People is of urgent demand. The State must effectively institutionalize and implement civil rights and human rights”. This is one of the key principles specifying the nature of socialist state ruled by law in Vietnam.
The 2013 Constitution devotes 36 out of its 120 articles to human rights and fundamental rights and obligations of citizens. For the first time in Vietnam’s constitutional-making history, the Constitution prescribes that “the State ensures and promotes the people’s ownership; recognizes, respects, protects and ensures human rights and rights of citizens,” adding that the stipulation is in line with international human rights standards and has its root in the essence of human rights and the nature of Vietnam’s socialist regime.
Vietnam has enhanced international cooperation in human rights in a serious and open-minded manner, thus significantly contributing to ensuring basic rights and freedom of Vietnamese citizens.
It’s noted that the country has joined most major international treaties in human rights and actively work to fulfil relevant international commitments, stressing that through the cooperation, Vietnam has made positive contributions to establishing human right values on both regional and global scales.
As a result, Vietnam was deemed by the United Nations (UN) one of the most successful countries in the world in realizing the poverty eradication goal, the first of the eight Millennium Development Goals set by the UN.
International comunities affirmed such achievements, which have been proven through the country’s legal documents which cover all issues regarding human rights and citizens’ rights, and through the enforcement of Party and State policies to actualize human rights in all areas of social life. Vietnam has made positive contributions to establishing human right values on both regional and global scale.

To further promote and protect human rights, Vietnam should prioritise building and completing its legal system on human rights and citizens’ rights in line with new principles and regulations of the 2013 Constitution./.
