PROJECT EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Since their inception in 1998 in London to the most recent meeting in Brussels in October 2010, EU-China Summits demonstrate the importance of European and Chinese partnerships based on mutual understanding and joint efforts to overcome global problems ranging from ecological risks to economic crisis to social inequalities.

Reflecting on the issues of EU-China relationships, the project “Liberalism In Between Europe And China” (LIBEAC) aims at developing a new understanding of liberalism in its economic, political and social dimensions.

It involves a comparative analysis of the cultural differences in its interpretation and of the political discrepancies in its enforcement, in particular with respect to economic, social and environmental rights in China and Europe in Modern times. It is a multidisciplinary project based on a comparative study of European and Chinese political philosophy and political economy, legal practice and philosophy of right.

PROJECT RESEARCH BACKGROUND

Liberalism has, since earlier than the Enlightenment, implied at least the following two components: a component of economics and one of politics. Economic liberalism (at least in some of its most representative brands) assumes that the less the economy is controlled by the state, the more efficient auto-regulated free markets can be in terms of production and distribution of goods. Political liberalism, again at least most generally, assumes that the more citizens are free from control by the state, the more creative, responsible and auto-disciplined those free individuals can be in terms of production and diffusion of ideas and innovation. Economic liberalism may therefore, under given circumstances, equate to “Capitalism”; Political Liberalism may, also under given circumstances,equate to “Democracy”.

Inasmuch as some regard Liberalism as indeed being a Western Ideology, some structural correlation is often assumed between Economic Liberalism and Political Liberalism, as well as between Capitalism and Democracy: it goes at a par with the assumption that the more developed the economy in one country, the freer the persons living in this country. Now, does Liberalism truly work as a Western Ideology? And, in any case, is this correlation stable, in particular in the case of non-Western economies? Japan has been the first example, in the Meiji times, to face this dilemma. South Korea and Taiwan followed. And China is the most significant example in our times. If Liberalism works both at the level of expected economic welfare for the people and of political rights that it endows people with, shall we expect to observe such correlation in China as well? Is China an exception to the general “rule”, regarding its peculiar cultural background (notably its Confucian heritage) or is China a counter-example demonstrating that there is nothing as such a Rule, i.e. that the correlation between economic and social liberty purported by Liberalism is merely a matter of belief?

That dual line of thought ends up equating Liberty to Creativity both in economic (scientific discoveries leading to technological innovations and leadership assumed by free entrepreneurs) and in political terms (the “rule of law” in an open society). Yet, a major economic, social and environmental issue emerges *in the face of the inequalities that Liberalism also seems to inevitably generate.* It may thus be possible and/or useful to distinguish between a Liberalism of expected welfare (on the economic side) and a Liberalism of civil and political liberties and rights on the political side. As we differentiate those, tension surfaces which is intrinsic to what some name the ‘Western Ideology of Liberalism’. This project tests this upon the course of past and present history in between Europe and China, as the European Union seeks to shape a new understanding of that relationship for the future.

PROJECT TRENDS

The project stands at the confluence of two major issues for the European Union, in terms of internal policies as well as external actions:

  1. the position and role of the European Union in the World and
  2. the present and future of Human Rights.

The first issue, on liberal civil society and the various types of market-enhanced economies, brings concerns such as the World Trade Organization put forth recently when rebuking China’s application to be reckoned as a “market economy”. It relates to the new partnerships that the European Union is building with China in the globalized World and in the aftermath of the sovereign debt crisis. Our project is comparative as it focuses both on relationships between the European Union and China in particular, and accommodates viewpoints from China’s neighbor Japan.

The second issue, involving the present enforcement and future potential implementation and/or revision of Human Rights concepts, is addressed by focusing principally on the political, legal and economic aspects of the concept of Liberalism, regarded as made of several traditions, from social liberalism to liberal theories of economics. The project thus aims at disclosing cultural and political differences in terms of interpretation and of enforcement of “Liberalism” in Europe and in China today. We discuss in detail theories called “liberal”, building conceptual tools and types of criterion useful for that comparison.

Discussing those issues is all the more urgent that the recent global economic crisis has enhanced earlier temptations, on both sides of the Atlantic, to incriminate third parties. Globalization is often identified as the culprit for allowing competitive Asian companies to slow down European growth and for having created unemployment in Europe while Chinese counterparts affirm that European social benefits are responsible for European debt crisis and need a severe readjustment. Both the European Union and China will benefit from a better understanding of each other and from revising some of their mutual assumptions. New economic, political and juridical realities call for such an assessment, provided that the adequate evaluating criteria are presented.

Work package titleLegal Aspects of Liberalism
Work package n°4 | Start month: 4 | End month: 44
Beneficiary/ Partner organization short nameUNIPMN & IUSE (leader), PKU, THU
Objectives
  • To define the interactions between the implementation of the rule of law and economic development
  • To survey the enforcement of social, labor and civil rights in China in the frame of China’s participation to WTO
  • To propose a comparative study of Environmental Rights in Europe and China and their connection to Human Rights in the context of globalization
Description of the WorkTask 4.1 Rule of Law and Rule by Law in China and Europe: the research aims to assess the differences in the perception of law in China and Europe. Through a comparative study of the history of law, the cultural implications of the Confucian and Aristotelian traditions for the current elaboration of law will be addressed. The consequences of such conceptual differences will be assessed regarding the problem of the definition of the Rule of Law in international organizations. As stated by the World Bank: “Policymakers need to be clear about they mean by the rule of law because answers to many of the questions they are interested in – whether ‘rule of law’ facilitates economic development and whether democracy is a necessary precondition for rule of law, to cite just two examples – depend crucially on what definition of the rule of law is being used.”
T.4.2 China’s integration to the WTO: liberalization of economy and good governance: the research aims to define the opportunities and challenges of China’s accession to the WTO. While China’s accession to the WTO is a condition for WTO rules universalization, it could also change the rules and role of WTO itself. Integrating a market with strong structural, behavioral and cultural constraints such China raised numerous questions. The challenges of the real implementation of WTO provisions throughout the territory of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) must be assessed to evaluate China’s WTO compliance and China’s TRIPs (Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) compliance.
T.4.3. The Good Governance perspective will be also part of our analysis. The good governance could be a term of reference to rebalance the excessive risks of liberalization of the economy. It can gain even more importance and be seen under a new light in such a time of economical crisis.  The concept of good governance is part of the broader meaning of non-trade concerns (such as sustainable development, cultural rights, labour rights, public health, social welfare, national security, food safety, access to knowledge, consumer interests and animal welfare). Good Governance in particular is important when we refer to the general stability of the markets, to good faith and other key principles which are at the roots to build up a fair market in favour of both the governments and the citizens. Our analysis will focus on how to integrate the good governance concepts in the context of the global governance and law with a special focus on the Chinese role in this context after the accession to the WTO, the good governance in trade defence measures (dumping, compensatory and countervailing measures), the governance of markets and the global competition law with special focus on the antimonopoly law in China, the legal and economical analysis of dumping and anti-dumping under the financial crisis and the reforms of the Chinese financial law and the role of banks in the financial crisis.
DeliverablesD. 4.1 Collective workshop on China’s integration to WTO in the perspective of international law and its challenges for European Union support to Intellectual Property, NTCs and Good Governance
D. 4.2 Individual papers submitted in international journals
D. 4.3 One collective book on Liberalism between East and West
