Chapter Summary

This chapter explores and assesses the developments of China's international law approaches and practices to see how China has complied with international law since 1949. As it is known that international law originated in the West, being a big power China's view on and attitude towards it are of direct relevance to the exercise of international law. Also, since international law governs a large portion of international relations in the world, it is important to see how and to what extent China recognizes it and behaves in compliance with it. It explores international rules with Chinese characteristics. For the sake of convenience, "China" here means only the PRC, so that the practice and study of international law in Taiwan are not covered. The chapter mainly covers China's practice and study of international law since the beginning of the economic reform and open-door policy in 1978.
