Yu Jianrong on Social Unrest in China – Carl Minzner

From Chinese Law and Politics Blog:

What causes in China? Institutional failure.

That’s the message delivered by Yu Jianrong, Director of the Institute of Rural Development at Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, in a series of speeches in California during late October. His comments underline the extent to which social unrest in China is directly linked to institutional problems that prevent the Chinese legal and political systems from effectively responding to mounting citizen grievances.

Yu made two speeches at the University of California in Berkeley on October 29th and 30th.

One speech is titled “China’s Crisis of Control and Response: An Analysis of Recent Incidents of Social Unrest” (‰∏≠ÂõΩÁöÑÁÆ°Âà∂Âç±Êú∫‰∏éÂØπÁ≠ñ–ËøëÂπ¥Êù•Á§æ‰ºöÈ™ö‰π±‰∫㉪∂ÂàÜÊûê), and a transcript is reposted on the China Elections and Governance website. [Full Text]

Carl Minzner is an associate professor of Law at the Washington University School of Law in St. Louis.
