Five national education and training bases on human rights were set up in China on Tuesday, bringing the total number of such bases to eight.
The five institutions authorized to serve as education and training bases are human rights research centers at Renmin University, Fudan University, Wuhan University, Shandong University and Southwest University of Political Science and Law.
"The move will surely help to promote faster and better development of China's human rights undertaking," said Cui Yuying, deputy director of the Information Office of China's State Council, while addressing the authorization ceremony.
Cui expects the bases to become human rights think tanks and engage in international exchanges.
Nankai University, China University of Political Science and Law, and Guangzhou University were authorized to serve as national education and training bases in October 2011 in accordance with the government's plan to promote human rights in China.
