Tsinghua China Law Review Spring 2016 Issue aims to provide
our readers with a spectrum view on contemporary developments
and enduring questions in the research of Chinese law. The authors
contributing to this issue represent diverse academic and professional

subtle differences between the principle of representation and
principle of leadership in Chinese constitutional law.
