About the Event:

China's 4th Plenum (more properly called the Fourth Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee) was concluded on October 23, 2014. At the plenum’s closing, the CCP Central Committee issued a communiqué on “comprehensively advancing ruling the country according to the law”. While the details of implementation remain scarce, the document presents a general overview of reforms to China’s legal system with four takeaways from the Fourth Plenum communiqué, namely:
  1. Lessening local officials’ control over the legal system.
  2. Increase both the accountability and transparency of government.
  3. Emphasis on the importance of China’s constitution.
  4. Made it clear that the “rule of law” does not mean a decrease in Party authority.
