Part of the Politics and Development of Contemporary China book series (PDCC)


The studies of policing in Greater China can continue to utilize the combined perspectives adopted in this book—police-politics relations and David Easton’s political system theory—for the sake of exploring the dynamic and complex interactions between the police and politics. The context of policing constantly shapes the content of policing in Greater China. While police reform and modernization are persistent in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, their mutual learning and knowledge transfer have become the hallmarks of police development, reforms and modernization. Although crisis management remains a prominent weakness of policing in Greater China, it is hoped that the police preparedness, capability and responses to crises can and will be improved through persistent knowledge transfer in the coming decades.
