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.

New Security Law

In July 2015 the NPC Standing Committee passed a new National Security law (full text: CN, EN). The legislation declared both cyberspace and outer space part of China’s national security interest, and it is couched in general terms, with few exact details. This leaves the authorities ample room for interpretation.
