Chapter Summary

A careful and well-coordinated immigration strategy with a well-defined right to leave and return (RLR) focus has the potential to enhance China’s economic progress and to improve its international human rights image. There are many issues pertaining to the protection of RLR in China that demand prompt solutions. To better understand the issues, and appreciate the political, social and legal complexities of RLR in China, it is important to first trace its historical development and make valid observations about current reforms and future trends. This chapter focuses primarily on development since 1978, but briefly considers the period between 1949 and 1958 to provide an essential backdrop against which the reform strategy can be viewed. It carefully analyzes the reform strategy and measures from the perspectives of the context, goals, content, effects, deficiencies, nature and features to understand the possible future of RLR in China.

Keywords: China; economic progress; historical development; international human rights; right to leave and return (RLR)
