Chapter Summary

For more than two decades China has been continuously active in judicial reform, aiming to develop a fair and efficient system to serve society's changing needs. International law and foreign legal systems have certainly generated some reform measures, or had an effect on them. This chapter discusses some of the major progressions of Chinese judicial system in post-Mao China, and focuses on the current dilemmas facing the Chinese judiciary. It goes without saying, that in a country with a population of around 1.3 billion, which is on a different level of economic development, has an increasing gap between the rich and poor and a political system that is restricted to domination by one Communist Party, these developments in judicial reform which were initiated in mid-1980s have to cope with a variety of difficulties and obstructions in practice. At present, the Chinese judicial system remains in a fluctuating state of transition.
