Chinese law is going through a new phase of modernization, the first in the history of the People’s Republic of China and the third in the history of China. This recent attempt sees three actors as protagonists: tradition, political ideology, and the West. These actors do not have a specific role or a definition but animate a vigorous debate on which the future cultural identity of the country depends.
The Institute of Chinese Law is the think tank that supports, promotes, and disseminates, in a comparative and non-comparative perspective, the study, research, and knowledge of Chinese law, its history, and all those historical, economic, political, cultural, social and financial aspects that can help to understand the phenomenon in its complexity, to determine its implications and repercussions, in Italy, in Europe and internationally.
To pursue these aims, the Institute works in partnership with national, European, Chinese, and international institutions, academic institutions, companies, professional associations, and public and private bodies.
The Institute is open to anyone who shares the principles of respect, dialogue, tolerance, and scientific research and is a meeting place for all those interested in Chinese law.
To realize its purposes and work for the implementation of activities of general interest, the Institute:
- organizes, promotes and coordinates studies, researches, translations, debates, seminars, and conferences;
