Assessing Treaty Performance in China

Trade and Human Rights

This book examines the dynamics of Selective Adaptation and Institutional Capacity as foundations for China's legal performance around international standards on trade and human rights. The paradigm of Selective Adaptation reveals how local interpretation and implementation of international treaty standards are affected by normative perspectives derived from perception, complementarity, and legitimacy. The paradigm of Institute Capacity helps explain how operational dimensions of legal performance are affected by structural and relational dynamics of institutional purpose, location, orientation, and cohesion. This volume outlines a new approach for understanding the treaty performance of an increasingly important actor in the international system. It also offers policy suggestions for more effective engagement with China on trade and human rights issues.
