The studies in this volume make apparent the activist disposition of China’s legal institutions in the era of Harmonious Society and Stability Maintenance. This disposition has enabled the Party-state to legitimize important changes in the practices and policies of courts, governments and security organs on the basis of a certain political narrative about the imperative of social stability. Political narrative, expressed particularly through Harmonious Society and Stability Maintenance discourse, has enabled the Party-state to reframe and reformulate justice and security practices to accommodate its place in leading the country through uncertain times of social upheaval that accompanies rapid economic growth.
