Abstract: In response to criticisms over the People's Republic of China's (PRC's) human rights record from both domestic dissidents and foreign activists, Beijing has formulated a response that characterizes this pressure as a security threat. If these demands for greater human rights protection were met, say Chinese officials and state-sanctioned media organs, it would result in societal chaos, economic retrogression, loss of national territory, and new vulnerability to foreign exploitation. This article explores the origins of Beijing's position and its implications for the PRC's foreign relations.
