Building the Rule of Law in China explores the idea that China needs a more globalized and diversified vision for the science of law, presenting the need to think differently from the two major western mainstream legal cultures, the Anglo-American and the continental systems.
Other globalized, universalized, and diversified models and experiences in the rule of law from diverse civilizations have much to offer China. Through learning from the strengths exhibited by systems in countries with a very developed and well-organized rule of law, and absorbing essential aspects from different countries, China might be well positioned to promote the development of the rule of law in a robust and comprehensive manner.
This book explores the topic from several perspectives, giving the reader an up-to-date resource on the ever-evolving vision for the science of law in China.
- Explores the situation of rule of law in China as it currently stands
- Presents a case that China must look beyond the two western systems of law for a more globalized vision
- Gives analysis on the contemporary situation, and insight into the near future
- Presents a particular perspective on the rule of law in China by a scholar closely involved with its actual development
- Translates into English, providing a new and valuable perspective to an English speaking readership
Researchers and postgraduate students in Asian Studies, Chinese Studies, and Law; governmental and non governmental stakeholders in China, including in business, government, NGOs
