Abstract

This chapter from the book Transparency Challenges Facing China examines recent developments in China's judicial transparency. It suggests that although the scope of judicial transparency is inevitably shaped by the requirements to keep state and work secrets confidential, the Supreme People's Court, within the boundaries of what is politically achievable, is taking concrete steps to expand the scope of judicial transparency and considers international indicators when doing so. It shows that views on judicial transparency within the Chinese Party and government system are not as monolithic as an outsider to the Chinese judiciary might have initially assumed.

Keywords: judicial transparency, Supreme People's Court, Chinese court system
