The book has sought to demonstrate via an examination of individual, state, institutional, and advocacy network behaviour that the human rights issue has become a dominant feature of the international system, and that the attention of these actors to human rights abuses inside states has led to the erosion of the traditional, Westphalian concept of state sovereignty, and a movement towards individual (rather than state) sovereignty. The consequences of the interaction between these global actors and China over the matter of its human rights record are summarized in this concluding chapter. The three main sections of the chapter look at the process of China's enmeshment in the human rights regime and in the discourse on rights, constraints on internalization in China, and China's own impact on the human rights regime.

Keywords:   China and global actors, human rights, human rights regime, individual sovereignty, internalization, rights beyond borders, state sovereignty, the external realm as a shaping mechanism
