China has in recent years made considerable progress in modernising its laws and legal institutions. It has in place the institutions of a formal legal system; a framework of laws and regulations, a national court system, a national prosecutorial system, numerous accredited law schools, and a rapidly expanding legal profession. However, the capacity of China’s legal and judicial system to effectively ensure adherence, compliance and enforcement of the law in an equitable manner is still limited.In line with the European Commission’s policy towards China, the National Indicative Programme 2005-6 (NIP) foresees a major action to enhance good governance, focusing on increasing the capacity of selected Chinese legislative organs, judicial and administrative systems and law enforcement agencies. The overall objective of the programme is to support the Chinese Government in its efforts to develop a society based on the rule of law. The specific objective is to increase capacity for realising China’s governance priorities.
