China's Conception of the Rule of Law and its Impacts on Market Governance

20th January 2016

Date and time: 20 January 2016, 14:00 - 17:15

Venue: British Institute of International and Comparative Law, Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square, London WC1B 5JP

This closed roundtable brought together academics, practitioners and members of Government to consider whether 'rule of law' as understood in China has made any impact on its market governance and its international business relationships. Held in conjunction with the University of Nottingham's China Policy Centre, the aim was to engage in a dialogue which examined how current research might be of use to those in practice, and how those in practice might inform the direction of research and contribute to research being practice-relevant. The event consisted of two panels. The first considered issues surrounding the title of the roundtable, and the second focused on the draft Foreign Investment Law and the transformation of foreign investment regulation in China. The roundtable was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and supported by the Law Society of England and Wales.
