Policy, the Rule of Law, and Rural Land Reform in China

This report discusses the most important characteristics of the rule of law and its relationship to policy in a general context. It compares and contrasts two methods of reaching economic, social, and political goals—law and policy—and describes in detail their characteristics, including the strengths and weaknesses of each. The authors discuss law and policy interactions in China, as well as how and why China has moved towards the rule of law. The report concludes with recommendations that might be pursued to further institute the rule of law in China and to create legal results that are more consistent with public desires and central government intent. | download PDF
