Mölle 2006

moelle2006_001The initiative for ECLS was launched at a workshop under the heading of “Chinese Legal Research in Europe: A Workshop Mapping European Research on Chinese Law and Creating a European Network”, held in Lund and Mölle, 1–4 June 2006. It was organised by the Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies, Lund University, and co-sponsored by the Swedish School of Advanced Asia Pacific Studies.

With Professor Marina Svensson and Dr Jonas Grimheden chairing discussions and more than 20 speakers presenting reports on China-related legal research in their home country and/or outlining their own research projects, the workshop provided the participants with an excellent overview of China legal studies in Europe and beyond.
