(p.231) 10 Lawmaking Reforms and China’s Democratic Prospects
The Politics of Lawmaking in Post-Mao China


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the prospects for lawmaking reform and democratization in China. It evaluates how well-institutionalized were the legislative changes of the Deng Xiaoping era and analyses how the changes in the Chinese policy-making process can strengthen the prospects for a system transition to democratization. It investigates where changes in the lawmaking system are linked with changes in the broader aim of making this segment of the political system more permeable to a variety of social interests.

Keywords:   lawmaking reform, democratization, China, Deng Xiaoping, legislative changes, policy making
