The Establishment Ceremony of the Supreme People¡¯s Court State Responsibility Research Center and Forum on ¡°Theory and Practice of Construction of State Responsibility System¡± Were Held in Renmin University of China

On 24 February 2017, the establishment ceremony of the Supreme People¡¯s Court State Responsibility Research Center and forum on Theory and Practice of Construction of State Responsibility System were held in Renmin University of China. Representatives of ministries and commissions of the State Council, courts, universities and law firms were present.



The concept of ¡°State Responsibility¡± is a significant achievement of theoretical innovation in Chinese legal research and practical work. The establishment of the Supreme People¡¯s Court State Responsibility Research Center will provide a platform for cross-border communication, cooperation and collaboration between legal theory and practice which is also conducive to the perfection of Chinese legal theory and the construction of state responsibility system. Legal and theoretical issues on construction of state responsibility system were mainly discussed, including its social background, challenges and prospect.



The first part was the establishment ceremony hosted by Vice Dean Hu Jinguang of Renmin Law School. Director Liu Hehua of Compensation Office of the Supreme People¡¯s Court firstly made a speech. He gave a brief introduction of state responsibility and pointed out that this concept and its related principle is an important manifestation of socialist rule of law. Advantage of the state responsibility research center should be taken to promote further theoretical and practical development of state responsibility and to achieve a win-win situation.



Executive Vice President Wang Liming of Renmin University of China in his speech pointed out that with the need of risk elimination, risk prevention and residual risk sharing in modern society, the concept of state responsibility should no longer be limited to traditional compensation for illegal acts. To construct a comprehensive state responsibility system will be conducive to responsibility taking and diversification of social governance.



Dean Han Dayuan of Renmin Law School insisted that the study of state responsibility was an interdisciplinary issue which should be based on constitutional analysis and focus on its core value¡ªrespect for human rights. Nowadays, facing the lack of cohesion in Chinese society, the key issue that should be addressed was to eliminate social contradictions and to establish a good social order through the systematization and judicialization of state responsibility. Dean Han also suggested further plan be developed and that academic committee should be set up for the research center.



Later, Director Liu and Dean Han signed the agreement for establishment of the state responsibility research center. Dean Han was appointed as the Director of the Center; Vice Dean Hu and Presiding Judge He Jun of the Supreme People¡¯s Court the Associate Director; Associate Professor Wang Xu of Renmin Law School and Judge Xu Chao of the Supreme People¡¯s Court the Secretariat; Associate Professor Zhu Hu the Vice Secretariat. Director Liu also issued the letters of appointment for the first group of researchers.







The second part was the forum on Theory and Practice of Construction of State Responsibility System which has three sections. The first section was hosted by Vice Dean Lin Jia of Renmin Law School. Presiding Judge He delivered a speech on Study on State responsibility Theory and Perfection of the System. Vice Dean Hu expressed his opinions from the constitutional perspective. The second section was hosted by Professor Liu Fei, Dean of China-EU School of Law at the China University of Political Science and Law. Researcher Zhu Wenqi, Researcher Ma Tao, Researcher Feng Jun, Researcher Shen Kaijun and Secretariat Wang Xu interpreted the construction of state responsibility system respectively from the perspectives of international law, national justice, compensation, etc. Researcher Wang Kai and Researcher Zhou Tao also made speeches during the third comprehensive discussion section.



At last, Associate Director Zhu Erjun of Compensation Office of the Supreme People¡¯s Court made a conclusion. He pointed out that the state responsibility research center co-established by the Supreme People¡¯s Court and Renmin Law School will promote cross-border cooperation between legal theory and practice and strengthen rights remedy and human rights protection. More activities such as case study and collaborative project should be carried out to make greater achievements for further development of rule of law in China.
