ThinkChina.dk Topic Group on Law and Regulatory Policy

This ThinkChina Topic Group on Law and Regulatory Policy seeks to analyze implications of the focus on rule of law, which forms an integral part of the ‘new normal’ agenda. It examines Chinese legal reforms, policy development, regulatory framework and dispute resolution practices on the domestic, regional and global levels.

Current political and economic status of China as a key international actor is increasingly reflected in its regulatory approaches. External legal standards have been strategically readapted and reformulated rather than absorbed, with China acting more and more often as an active international rule- and practice-maker. We acknowledge hybrid character of the Chinese approaches to normativity (combining Confucian, communist and commercial influences), and aim at exploring legal phenomena in their social, political, economic and cultural context.

Group’s research projects have been conducted in the areas of trade and investment law, international commercial arbitration, energy and environmental law. They have been funded by, inter alia, Dreyers Fond, Sino-Danish Center and S.C. Van Fonden.
