China Forum on the Rule of Law Publication Series

The Sino-Finnish Bilateral Seminars, jointly organized by the Center and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Institute of Law (CASS Law) on an annual basis, provide an opportunity for the organizers to make visible the tangible outcomes of their collaboration. Since the first Bilateral Seminar organized in 2009, it has become a tradition to make available to a wider public the papers given at seminars in the form of publications within the publication series China Forum on the Rule of Law. Following the language principle prevailing during the seminars, articles written by Chinese scholars are published in the original language and the Finnish scholars’ pieces in English. CASS Law (the Social Sciences Academic Press in Beijing) publishes the series within the China Forum on the Rule of Law collection and takes care of distribution of books.
