Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses three articles that are historical in their approach as they attempt to provide an overview of Chinese studies in the Netherlands during specific periods of time. The teaching of Chinese in the Netherlands has always been motivated by its relevance to contemporary societal needs, twentieth-century Dutch sinologists in their own research have overwhelmingly turned to the past. Such emphasis on the past in publications has resulted in a long-standing image outside Leiden that Dutch sinology takes no interest whatsoever in contemporary China. One area of studies that stands out in a positive way is the revival of the study of Chinese law in the Netherlands, both in the Faculty of Law at Leiden University, and in the Faculty of Law at the University of Amsterdam, which quite recently appointed Benjamin van Rooij to a newly created Chair of Chinese Law and Regulation.
