This talk is co-sponsored by Rutgers Global. It is open to the public, but registration is required.
The talk will discuss the role of formal law during China's "Legalized Politicization Era" (2010–present), the current era of market development in China. It shows how during the current era, the authorities over governing markets are being reconfigured to handle the consequences of prior era state capitalism. Such reconfiguration of market governance is achieved through the mobilization of legal institutions in two main directions: intensifying the presence of the regulatory state in the market, and shifting substantial market governance powers directly to the CCP. The talk is based on the book: Law & Political Economy in China: The Role of Law in Corporate Governance & Market Growth, Cambridge University Press (2023). The book analyzes four decades of market development in China [1978-2021], discussing the role of law as an internal party-state instrument for allocating political-economic power.
