  • ‘Accurately, Completely, and Solemnly’: One Country, Two Systems and
           an Uneven Constitutional Equilibrium
    • Authors: Husa J.
      Pages: 231 - 252
      Abstract: This article analyses the constitutional relation between Mainland China and the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong from a comparative legal cultural point of view. The recent controversy surrounding the Hong Kong Legislative Council members’ oath taking serves as a starting point for the analysis in this article. The discussion focuses on the Hong Kong Basic Law, which is conceived as an interface of the underlying meta-doctrine of ‘One Country, Two Systems’. The main argument is that the relation between Mainland China and Hong Kong is best understood as an uneven constitutional equilibrium. The underlying assumption is that the Hong Kong Basic Law is a constitutional interface where the contrasting legal cultural forces meet—that is, it is the place where the civil law type socialist legal system confronts the common law tradition. The article concludes by underlining the importance of path dependence in an attempt to understand and analyse the complicated constitutional balance that exists between the People’s Republic of China and Hong Kong.

  • Chinese Apples and the Emerging World Food Trade Order: Food Safety,
           International Trade, and Regulatory Collaboration between China and the
           European Union
    • Authors: Snyder F Ni L.
      Pages: 253 - 307
      Abstract: China is among the world’s largest producers of apples. It has a potentially large export market around the world. However, differences in food safety standards—for example, concerning pesticide residues—often pose serious challenges to Chinese exporters. Focusing mainly on Chinese exports of fresh apples to the European Union (EU), this article analyses these opportunities, related legal obstacles, and the increasingly successful strategies, both domestic and international, used by the Chinese government to meet those challenges associated with them. It considers the gradual alignment of Chinese standards with international standards, the Chinese export strategy based on government support for selected elite export companies, and the conclusion by the Chinese government of new bilateral agreements to open major new markets for Chinese businesses. In doing so, it traces interconnections between: international, EU, and Chinese food safety standards; China’s post-World Trade Organization succession international trade strategies; the modernization of Chinese agriculture; relations between public and private standards; the 16 + 1 arrangement between China and the Central and Eastern European countries including Member States of the EU; China’s One Belt, One Road initiative; and the development of a China-centred global food economy for apples. The result is an unusual form of regulatory collaboration between China and the EU. These factors are among the main drivers of transnational legal and economic relations in the international food trade today. They represent an emerging world food trade order.

  • Combating Foreign Bribery in China: Rethinking Zero Tolerance with
           ‘Chinese Characteristics’
    • Authors: Li E; Bronitt S.
      Pages: 308 - 344
      Abstract: This article examines foreign bribery in China since the early 2000s and the State’s legal and penal changes in response to this increasingly common form of transnational corruption. It argues that over the last fifteen years, Chinese authorities have shifted national anti-bribery policies from one of de facto corporate impunity to de jure zero tolerance. Multinational corporations engaging in foreign bribery in China today are no longer vulnerable only to the risk of investigation, prosecution, and punishment by foreign jurisdictions. Rather, foreign corporations are now faced with much tougher domestic law enforcement, which forms part of the State’s wider crackdown on corruption in China. However, as our case studies reveal, while the impact of zero tolerance strategies in curbing corporate offending is debatable, applying strategies of ‘harsh justice’ may ultimately be counterproductive to social stability and crime control. Although draconian, zero-tolerance strategies may appeal to politics of punitive populism, the authors contend that alternative strategies based on diversionary justice, such as deferred prosecution agreements and/or negotiated settlements, can more effectively realize the aims of prevention, restitution, rehabilitation, and reform. Drawing valuable lessons from the US and UK experiences, China has the potential to devise its own reconciliation scheme, tailored to local concerns and culture, and balancing legal accountability, cost-efficiency and social stability, especially in relation to the limiting potential adverse economic harms flowing from prosecuting multinational corporations for foreign bribery in China. Balancing the ‘payoffs’ and ‘pitfalls’ of negotiated justice, this article concludes that trialing diversionary measures is likely to appeal to affected stakeholders, including regulatory agencies, law enforcement and judicial authorities, corporate and business sectors, and the wider community, which are seeking to end to cultures of impunity for corporate corruption.

  • China’s Litigation on Non-Market Economy Treatment at the WTO: A
           Preliminary Assessment
    • Authors: Zhou W.
      Pages: 345 - 364
      Abstract: As promised, China brought a World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute against the USA and the European Union (EU) respectively regarding their anti-dumping laws, which continue to authorize the application of the so-called non-market economy (NME) methodology. This case was initiated one day after the expiry of paragraph 15(a)(ii) of China’s WTO Accession Protocol on 11 December 2016. Through a preliminary analysis of China’s claims in the request for consultation with the EU, this article argues that the expiration of paragraph 15(a)(ii) has terminated the right of WTO members to use surrogate prices or costs for price comparison in anti-dumping actions against China solely based on their national market economy criteria. The use of surrogate prices or costs must now comply with the relevant WTO rules applicable to all WTO members. On this basis, the challenged EU measure is likely to be found WTO inconsistent. Towards this end, WTO members may continue to label China as a NME for political or other reasons under their national laws. However, whatever this label may entail, it no longer justifies the application of the NME methodology.

  • The Jurisdiction of Nigeria’s Investments and Securities Tribunal
    • Authors: Nnona CG.
      Pages: 365 - 397
      Abstract: The stature and effectiveness of the Investments and Securities Tribunal, Nigeria’s specialized court for the resolution of securities and investments disputes, have long been diminished by overarching doubts about, and challenges to, the Tribunal's statutorily assigned jurisdiction. By recourse to US securities law and relevant Anglo-Nigerian legal doctrine, this article canvasses the thesis that the Tribunal has jurisdiction, albeit non-exclusive, over the matters assigned to it under the Investments and Securities Act, and the validity of this jurisdiction is discernible via a set of arguments presented in this article, but hitherto elided in the literature on the Tribunal’s jurisdiction—arguments that particularly focus on the following points as essential markers of the Tribunal’s jurisdiction vis-à-vis competing courts, notably the State and Federal High Courts: (i) the essential distinction between companies/company law covered by competing courts and securities/securities regulation covered by the Tribunal; (ii) the special character and significance of claims/claimants seeking to constrain or shape the exercise of discretion by the federal government or its agencies, being claims/claimants over which competing courts have jurisdiction, and those not seeking to do so being claims/claimants potentially within the Tribunal’s competence; and (iii) the essential, core distinction between the financial institutions and activities covered by the Tribunal and the others (banks/banking and other financial institutions) covered by competing courts.

  • Good Governance and Judicial Review in Hong Kong
    • Authors: Gu M.
      Pages: 398 - 419
      Abstract: According to some scholars, one of the features of good governance is that laws are well respected, which means that government should exercise its administrative power based on existing laws, on the one hand, and all people should respect the relevant laws, on the other hand. This should also be the spirit of the rule of law. Against this background, it is true that judicial review is a good process to ensure that government decisions or actions comply with the relevant laws. In Hong Kong, there is an increasing tendency towards judicial review cases. It has been estimated that there are over 100 cases per year. Would this increase in cases serve as an unnecessary burden on the courts' Certainly, it is also legitimate to ask the intention of a possible judicial review—that is, whether these judicial review cases are based on political motivation to hinder the proper governmental actions or to delay the bills relating to people’s livelihoods' This article tries to address these issues and to propose that, on the one hand, the government should be more prudent in its decision-making process, and, on the other hand, that there should be a mechanism to prevent judicial review from being abused.

  • Making an Arbitration Claim under Chinese BITs: Some Inferences from
           Recent ISDS Cases
    • Authors: Pathirana D.
      Pages: 420 - 432
      Abstract: The People’s Republic of China has experienced steady inbound and increased outbound flows of foreign direct investment in recent years. It has concluded a web of international investment agreements that includes 131 bilateral investment treaties—110 of which are in force—as well as 21 other agreements with investment provisions. This treaty network reflects China’s adoption and promotion of international standards relating to cross-border investment. This decade has seen China gradually becoming more engaged in the investor–State dispute settlement regime, either as a host State or as a home State. Distinctive legal issues can be identified in the arbitration claims in which China has been involved as the home State, albeit they remain disproportionately modest when compared to the country’s significant outbound foreign direct investment. Against this background, this article details such distinctive legal issues by reference to the five known investor–State dispute settlement claims by Chinese investors, providing an overview of the legal hurdles facing Chinese investors when they make an arbitration claim under early Chinese bilateral investment treaties.
