United Nations and Civil society have expressed growing concerns over the Chinese and Saudi Arabia governments on human rights violations. I agree with Blair that China and Saudi Arabia have been in the spotlight due to their records of human rights violations. Americans have raised concerns regarding Chinese human rights, which include reproductive and religious rights. This has gone beyond discriminatory and arbitrary restrictions on fundamental rights that should be enjoyed collectively and individually. For instance, in 2020, Human Rights Watch stated that there were sanctions against 4 Xinjiang officials by freezing their properties and outlawing them from entering the United States (Lum & Weber, 2021). China has tried to improve modern international law through China’s criminal procedure law.
In Saudi Arabia, human rights issues have mainly been linked to torture during punishment, executions, lack of freedom of speech, and women’s discrimination. For instance, girls and women have been discriminated against by laws that ensure that they are minor people to men, especially in the family. Saudi Arabian Courts continue to sentence their people who are punished through torture and corporal punishment (Dammer & Albanese, 2013). Ideally, Saudi Arabia relies on traditional Islamic law, which only protects minimal human rights compared to modern international law. Modern international law has accused Saudi Arabia of relying on detention without trial, arbitrary arrest, and cruel punishments.
I concur with Blair that harsher economic sanctions in the United States and other countries can play a major role in reforming the human rights policies in China and Saudi Arabia. The U.S has begun human rights agenda with Saudi Arabia, but more action needs to be taken to end the human rights violation. The International community can help fix human rights issues by increasing pressure on these countries to improve human rights and meet modern international law standards.
