This paper seeks to explore the potential constructive and constitutive role of religions in building a community of a shared future for mankind and in serving as an important source of human rights in as much as they provide “a sense of morality, social duty and concern for one’s fellow human beings”.
 
I will do so by focusing on core elements from this concept of ‘building a community of a shared future for mankind’ – coined by President Xi Jinping in his keynote speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos on 17 January 2017 and at the 19th National Conference of the Communist Party of China on 18 October 2017 – and showing how much these elements are core values in the various religions as well, in particular Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam.
 
This exploration will take place against the background of the standpoints taken in the last five years by the Communist Party of China (CPC) on religion and its meaning for the Chinese socialistic society.
 
Finally, I will indicate the necessity for more knowledge and a better understanding in the West of China’s policy on religion and will argue for a global dialogue on the role of faith and religion in the public domain in the North and the South and for partnerships and processes to involve religious actors in addressing shared global challenges. Here I will emphasize the necessity for a broad acceptance and application of the Comprehensive Southern Vision on Human Rights.
