About the speaker
Troshchinsky Pavel Vladimirovich
candidate of Legal Sciences

teacher of special courses: "Chinese law"; "Chinese in law"; "Chinese for business communication» .
In the autumn of 1949, a new Chinese state appeared on the world map, the formation of which was accompanied by the creation of a unique mechanism of legal regulation, which combined the advanced law-making experience of Soviet Russia with special Chinese specifics, which for thousands of years formed the legal consciousness and legal culture of the Chinese individual. Subsequently, after the well-known destructive events associated primarily with the Cultural Revolution, China again offered the world a new and still exclusive model of legal regulation, thanks to which, during forty years of reform and openness, enormous progress was achieved in development, and the PRC became the second most powerful world power.
The law-making experience of the Chinese legislator casts doubt on the exclusivity of the models of legal development proposed by the West. Over the years of reforms, China has proved to the world the possibility of other alternative and no less progressive models of legal regulation of the political and socio-economic spheres. China has made tremendous progress in its development in the absence of the rule of law, separation of powers, checks and balances, multiparty system, democratic electoral system, etc. Despite this, due to the nationally oriented legal policy, the interests of the state, society and, with certain reservations, the individual, were under reliable legal protection.
