The PRC Constitution came into force in 1982, only a few
years after the Cultural Revolution and the launching of the
reforms. Since then, however, the PRC has changed
significantly. Does this Constitution, though amended four
times, still match the needs of China’s society today? Where
is Chinese constitutionalism heading? Are there any plans to
improve and further institutionalize the implementation of
the Constitution? How do Chinese legal experts discuss the
future of their Constitution? This issue features papers
presented during a conference on the Chinese Constitution in
2012 and more.
