Björn Ahl and Pilar- Paz Czoske


This paper outlines the development of Chinese legislation governing foreign nationals and the changes of the overall legal framework. They analyse the level of protection of rights of foreign nationals in the area of labour law and legal remedies against measures taken on the basis of the Exit-Entry Administration Law. They argue that recent reforms have been more symbolic than functional and that the protection of rights of migrants has not been significantly improved by recent reforms.
