China Radio International awards paper by FGV professor as one of best in 2017
Professor at FGV’s Rio de Janeiro Law School (Direito Rio), Evandro Menezes de Carvalho, was awarded by China Radio International (CRI) in the opinion category of the annual Journalism award. The study ‘As Duas Sessões e a promoção do Estado de Direito na China’ [The Two Sessions and the promotion of the Rule of Law in China] was considered the third best of the year by the Chinese government-linked broadcaster.
The text deals with the advancement of the rule of law in China, and particularly the future of Chinese law with the approval of the General Provisions of Civil Law in the National Popular Assembly in March 2017. This was an important step in what will become the new Chinese Civil Code, which should pass in 2020.
“The West still has little familiarity with the Chinese political system and its model of socialism with Chinese characteristics. But China tends to show to the world the new possibilities of building a country and a structured legal culture in different foundations than those of the West. The Two Sessions are one of the faces of this model of governance”, said Carvalho.
