A comparative look at the ‘China model’ of law and development
The coronavirus pandemic has rerouted global supply chains, suspended international labour, and affected state alliances. These changes have incited debates about good governance regarding economic wellbeing, public health, security, and freedom. China has emerged as a champion of globalisation and provides public goods to the developing world. The EU-funded CLD project focuses on the role of law in China’s version of transnational governance. China appears to both build on existing legal infrastructures (courts, contracts, and private law systems) and innovating alternatives, for example, in development finance and dispute resolution. This multi-disciplinary project generates empirical data about China’s approach to building order and assesses its impact on emerging economies.
