Vietnam has been implementing its strategy of building the rule-of-law state in a socialist regime whilst assuming its obligations and duties under international law to respect, protect and fulfil human rights as a signatory of international treaties.  This article analyzes the relationship between the rule-of-law state and human rights from the perspectives of the United Nations and the Communist Party of Vietnam. It also provides an overview of the process of building a socialist rule-of-law state in Vietnam since Doi Moi (Renovation 1986) up to now, with the turning point of the promulgation of the Resolution 27-NQ/TW on continuing to build and improve the socialist rule-of-law state in Vietnam in the new period. On that basis, the authors make recommendations for strengthening the protection and assurance of human rights and citizens’ rights generally, and with a particular look at the right to freedom of peaceful assembly, with the aim of meeting the requirements of building and improving the socialist rule-of-law state in Vietnam in the coming years.
