China, global governance & legal culture

Chapter


Abstract


  • A study of the relationship between China and Global Governance should consider

    that relationship from all angles and perspectives. One perspective is through the

    combined prism of comparative and international law-through a legal cultural

    analysis of the international law relationships between China and the different parts

    that constitute "global governance". Indeed, one of the factors that shape the relations

    of a state with the international legal order is the interaction between that state's legal

    cultures and the legal cultures of the relevant international legal institutions. To the

    extent that state's specific legal culture is close to or similar to the legal cultures

    present in the international legal order then that interaction is unlikely to be

    noteworthy-at least from a legal cultural perspective. To the extent the state's legal

    culture diverges from or is opposed to the dominant legal cultures within the

    international legal order one might then expect those differences to lead to

    difficulties-ones that will likely serve as obstacles to the smooth interaction between

    that state and the international legal order one would have expected if the legal culture

    were similar.
