EU-China interdependent relations have evolved in recent decades. To decision makers and opinion leaders across the EU States, “engaging and cooperating with China is both an opportunity and necessity.” Yet, there lacks a consensus as to what a sound ‘China Strategy’ would be. In that light, we welcome students who are motivated to explore legal and governance issues in today’s China throughout the course, which will consist of opposing theories and disputing cases.
Lead lecturers, Dr. QIAO Cong-rui and Prof. Tom Zwart, have gained considerable experience in the areas of law, governance and human rights in China, and established collaborations with the Supreme People’s Court and local courts on how to improve the delivery of justice in a variety of dispute situations. Tom is the 2020 laureate of the prestigious Li Buyun Law Prize, selected by a panel of senior legal scholars and practitioners in recognition of Tom’s contribution to research and teaching of human rights law in China for almost two decades.
