Judicial activism in China

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Extract: Judicial activism versus judicial restraint is a perennial theme in legal literature. Based on the principle of separation of powers, judicial activism frequently carries a negative connotation, while judicial restraint is championed as the antidote for unbridled discretion. Since China launched economic reforms in the late 1970s, the Chinese judiciary has undertaken various reforms, especially in terms of the qualification of judges, the judicial processed and the role of the court in society.
