The General Provisions of Civil Law, Party Groups and the Belt and Road Initiative

It is my pleasure to announce the forthcoming publication, in Chinese, of a short essay on

"The General Provisions of Civil Law, Party Groups, and the Belt and Road Initiative". 

The Belt and Road Economies.

The essay, which is part of a series of commentaries on the General Provisions of Civil Law authored for the Chinese and Western public, examines the ways in which the General Provisions of Civil Law can contribute to the construction of a transnational rule of law framework for the Belt and Road Initiative. I discuss how the General Provisions of Civil Law bolster the legal status of Party groups in SOEs, private enterprises, and social organizations (including NGOs and Foundations) operating both in China and in Western countries.

A Chinese version of the essay - which was originally written in my native language (Italian) - will soon be published on this blog.
