   schema:description "As one of China's most influential law professors, He Weifang has been at the forefront of the country's path toward justice and judicial independence for over a decade. Among his many remarkable endeavors was a successful petition in 2003 that abolished China's controversial regulations permitting the internment and deportation of urban "vagrants," bringing to an end two decades of legal discrimination against migrant workers. His bold remarks at the famous New Western Hills Symposium in 2006, including his assertion that "China's party-state structure violates the PRC Constitution," are considered a watershed moment in the century-long movement for a constitutional China. In this book, He presents his critical assessment of the state of Chinese legal reform. In addition to a selection of his academic writings, In the Name of Justice also includes many of He Weifang's public speeches, media interviews, and open letters, providing additional insight into his dual roles as thinker and practitioner in the Chinese legal world. Among topics covered are judicial independence, judicial review, legal education, capital punishment, and legal protection of free speech and human rights. The volume offers a historical review of the evolution of Chinese traditional legal thought, enhanced by cross-country comparisons. A proponent of reform, He believes true constitutionalism can guarantee social justice and enduring stability for China."@en ;
