"Human rights," the common value of human beings, are based on human wants-on those things necessary. The scopes of dialogue over human rights have become global, and the challenge of understanding human rights from these perspectives has never been greater. For human rights in Vietnam, many scholars and activists had different approaches, ideas, and conceptions. However, their approaches used to be one-sided; one side could support human rights in Vietnam, the other side could criticize human rights in Vietnam. From Vietnam's case, by using a historical, comparative method and my personal experiences in international relations, I want to prove that human rights have been used as a political tool and contend it is wrong to use human rights as a means to oppose each other. I call for all sides to carry out constructive dialogues to narrow differences in human rights.
