New Article in European Competition Law Review by Yi Shin Tang, CESEL

Yi Shin Tang, Assistant Professor of International Economic Law at the Centre for European Studies in Economic Law (CESEL) has published a new article entitled “Lawmaking Process and Non-Governmental Stakeholders in China’s Antimonopoly Law.”

China’s Antimonopoly Law has become frequently criticized for having been drafted to the detriment and oblivious to foreign competitors’ interests. The article explores this issue by providing an account of the lawmaking process of AML and identifying its main stakeholders. In particular, the article identifies to which extent the production of the AML has been participatory and responsive to the demands of the different stakeholders involved in the discussion – particularly the interests of foreign actors who now seem to be those most negatively affected by the AML –, despite the apparent constraining structure of the China’s single-party system. This issue is analyzed by looking at the modifications that occurred in the successive drafts of the AML, in contrast with the set of interests and political pressures that surrounded them until the law was eventually approved.
