    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Since the early 1980s, the People's Republic of China has embarked on a dramatic and ongoing experiment with legal and institutional reform.The circumstances and experience of reform concerning detention and imprisonment have been both controversial and understudied. Given their political sensitivity, until very recently institutions of detention and imprisonment have remained mostly cloaked in secrecy. As a result, the scope, significance and the internal dynamics of reforms to these systems have been less well understood than reforms in different areas of Chinese law.
