I should have signed my initials to the last blog -- sorry to have forgotten to do so. But I will be blogging on China and developments there over the course of the next several weeks/months. One of the things to note is that the Western press is almost always exclusively interested in sensational stories. There are lots of other ones, including incremental changes for the better in the legal landscape for civil society in China. These are really glass half full glass half empty issues!
I will address some of the issues in a paper I will be presenting at the ABA Section of International Law's program in October on Miami. The paper will be published in the October issue of the International Journal of Civil Society Law (www.iccsl.org). A recent scholarly article of mine on China is "Regulation of Civil Society in China: Necessary Changes After the Olympic Games and the Sichuan Earthquake," 32 Fordham, J. Int'l L. 943.
