After reviewing the evolution of international disaster relief law in China, as against the international disaster response law at the global level, the present author makes proposals for improvement as follows: (i) that a more inclusive, fair and objective attitude towards foreign assistance should be taken; (ii) particular attention should be paid to the development trend of international disaster response law on protection of disaster victims; (iii) there should be understanding about the significance of accepting foreign disaster relief assistance from the perspective of the protection of human rights; and (iv) domestic international disaster relief legislation in China should be developed to be consistent with international norms and practice.
