  1. A Study of the Juvenile Justice System in China from a Japanese Perspective, Nobuhito Yoshinaka, The 6th World Forum on China Studies, 2015/11/21, With Invitation, State Cuncil Information Office, Shanghai Municipal People's Govermnent, Shanghai International Convention Center, From the late 1990s onward, many countries have enacted new juvenile justice laws in response to public outrage over youth violence. Consistent with this global trend, China has enacted the Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Protection of Minors in 1991 and the Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Prevention of Juvenile Crime in 1999. The public reaction of anger against youth crime in Japan and other countries has resulted in an increasingly punitive approach and a greater emphasis on protecting both society and the victims of youth crime. For example, since the 1997 ‘Child A’ case in Japan (in which an 11year-old boy was beheaded by a 14 year-old boy in Kobe), the Juvenile Law 1949 was amended four times (in 2000, 2007, 2008 and 2014). In addition to the need to protect society, both China and Japan have recognised the importance of protecting the human rights of children in juvenile justice proceedings and juvenile institutions. In China, a 2012 amendment incorporated a new chapter on the protection of the rights of juveniles in the fifth part of the Criminal Procedure Law 1997. In Japan, the former Juvenile Training School Law was abrogated in 2014, and new safeguards were integrated into the Juvenile Training Schools Act and the Juvenile Classification Homes Act. Despite the recent trend of legislative reforms, there is an essential difference between the two justice systems. In terms of the systemic structure, the Chinese system follows a European model, whereas the Japanese system has followed an American model since the enactment of the Juvenile Law 1922. This presentation will analyse some characteristics of the current juvenile justice system adopted in China from a Japanese perspective.
