Abstract

China’s greatly changing media environment poses challenges to government and rulemaking. Commercial and technological evolutions are buffeting the Chinese model of media control, based on strict administrative control, broad discretion and opaque norms. It is often recognized that this mode of control is based on the characteristics of China’s political structure. Little attention has thus far been paid, however, to the origin and meaning of the norms underpinning this structure, and how they continue to influence media policymaking. This paper aims to provide a preliminary insight into some of these norms, and their manifestation in regulatory and institutional practice.

Keywords: China, media, law, history
