Chapter Summary

It is necessary to analyse both China-related factors and international-related factors when discussing the right to leave and return (RLR) in China. An analysis from an international perspective provides the international criteria and a point of reference for China when evaluating the actual situation and issues of the existing Chinese law governing exit and entry. To appreciate RLR and its special role as a fundamental national and international human right and to appreciate the particular factors that drive it in China, one must first understand the foundations of RLR. This chapter seeks to explore the foundations of RLR from the three aspects of philosophy, history, globalisation and international migration. There are many factors that drive the historical development of the laws governing RLR. They include politics, economics, culture and law which have different features in different States.

Keywords: China-related factors; Chinese law; globalization; history; international human right; international-related factors; philosophy; right to leave and return (RLR)
