Die chinesische Regierung ist zu einem der wichtigsten Akteure in der internationalen Politik aufgestiegen. Ohne eine sorgfältige Analyse des politischen Systems ist ein fundiertes Verständnis des Aufstiegs der Volksrepublik China nicht möglich. Welchen Anteil haben politisches System und Staatstätigkeit an der wirtschaftlichen Transformation Chinas? Welche Konsequenzen haben wirtschaftliche Modernisierung und weltwirtschaftliche Integration für das politische System? Ist Chinas politisches System fähig, sich veränderten ökonomischen, technologischen, gesellschaftlichen und internationalen Bedingungen anzupassen?
Dieses Buch soll zu einem differenzierten Verständnis der Voraussetzungen, Potenziale und Risiken der politischen Entwicklung in China beitragen. Es basiert auf einer umfassenden Auswertung chinesischer Quellen und auf dem neuesten Stand der internationalen Chinaforschung. Das Buch ist jetzt auch in englischer Übersetzung beim Verlag Rowman & Littlefield Publishers erschienen.

2.11.3 Courts and judges
On November 1, 2016, the Central Leading Small Group for Comprehensively Deepening Reforms approved the SPC’s application on establishing additional circuit tribunals in Chongqing, Xi’an, Nanjing and Zhengzhou. From now on, the SPC will be able to assume a more direct control of the judicial practice in Northeast China, South China, East China, Central China, Southwest China and Northwest China.
2.11.6 Criminal law and the penal system
On November 15, 2016, the Supreme People’s Court (SPC) gave an order to carry out the execution of Jia Jinglong’s death penalty despite wide appeals for annulling the judgement. After the forced demolition of his house Jia had killed a village party secretary. Leading jurists and rights activists in China argued openly for exculpating Jia. The SPC replied openly to the concerns afterwards.
2.12 The military and politics
The three-day drill took place from November 16-18, 2016, in southwestern city of Kunming—one week after the election of Donald Trump. Commanders from both sides stressed that such military exchanges should continue under the new American administration. They described them as a crucial instrument in building trust and advancing military cooperation between the two powers.
2.3.2 Party congresses and ballots
This planned reform was announced by the CCP Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) on November 7, 2016. The new institution will be set up under the people’s congresses and monitor all public servants, including executive officers, judges and prosecutors, whether they are party member or not. The merging of the anti-draft agencies in the party, executive, and judiciary means an enormous power gain for the people’s congresses. Criticized for lack of legality, the CCDI, however, has to hand over their investigative activities against corruption suspects. This reform will be first tried out in Beijing, Shanxi, and Zhejiang provinces before being implemented nationwide.
2.6 Special Administrative Regions: Hong Kong and Macau
Youngspiration’s Yau Wai-ching and Baggio Leung lost their seats on the Legislative Council after losing their final appeal against Hong Kong’s High Court ruling that the two did not truly intend to take the oath during the swearing in ceremony on October 12, 2016. The two “localist” candidates had changed the wording of the oath and used derogatory terms to convey their opposition to the People’s Republic. In its decision, the High Court had sided with a controversial interpretation of Hong Kong’s Basic Law issued by the NPC earlier in November. The two are the first candidates to ever be disqualified from the Legislative Council.
1.2 How China is portrayed in Western media
On November 22, the Foreign Correspondence Club China (FCCC) published their Working Conditions Report 2016. Based on a survey among 118 journalists in China, the report highlights a new form of harassment by the State Security Bureau who regularly calls in journalists for ad-hoc meetings. An increase in the use of force by authorities against reporters at work is a second major concern the survey expresses.
2.10.2 The People’s Congresses
A number of independent candidates across the country attempted to participate in low-level election campaigns for membership of the people’s congresses. Between October and November 2016, police in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, etc. reportedly intimidated and detained more than 100 independent election candidates as a gesture to deter them from such campaigns.
532 members of the people’s congresses in Liaoning province bought votes to get their membership in different levels of people’s congresses, including 45 delegates to the NPC. The SCNPC held a special plenary on September 13 to annul the bribed membership of the delegates and order a re-election in Liaoning.
On October 10, 2016, more than a hundred Chinese lawyers signed an open letter to express their objection to the revised regulations on the management of law firms which lay down sanctions on lawyers who write open letters or sign petitions. They called for the dismissal of Wu Aiying, the Minister of Justice of the PRC, who was responsible for issuing the administrative measures.
2.11.7 Judicial reform
The State Council published a White Paper concerning judicial protection of human rights. The White Paper released a bunch of statistics to show the progress of human rights protection in judicial fields. However, the White Paper ignored important criticism from the international community and civil society.
