Chapter Summary

The book The Right to Leave and Return and Chinese Migration Law explores the Chinese regulatory framework governing the right to leave and return (RLR), to determine its consistency by reference to international human rights ethics. It identifies factors driving RLR in China, analyses the historical development, present status and issues of RLR in China, then argues as to the favourable conditions and practical concerns for protection of RLR, to then identifies the policy implications for its protection. This introductory chapter briefly sets out the research objectives, context and scope, organisation of the book, research methodology, sources and research significance. It gives a general picture of this book. In developing the analytical rationale, it is necessary to decide at the outset what the foundations of RLR are, and what States' responsibility for the protection of RLR might entail.

Keywords: Chinese migration law; Chinese regulatory framework; international human rights ethics; right to leave and return (RLR)
