Jerome Cohen and Margaret K. Lewis Promote New Book at the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (Video)

Jerome Cohen and Margaret K. Lewis’ new book,  Challenge to China: How Taiwan Abolished Its Version of Re-Education Through Labor, draws attention to an underappreciated aspect of legal reforms in Taiwan and asks how Taiwan’s experience might be relevant to its neighbor across the Taiwan Strait. The Mainland leadership has for years claimed that it would soon abolish labor camps for its police-dominated system of “re-education through labor,” but until recently has not taken steps to do so. Authors Jerome A. Cohen, a professor at NYU School of Law since 1990, and Margaret K. Lewis, an associate professor at Seton Hall Law School, discussed how their research on Taiwan’s experience provides fresh ideas for the Mainland’s future reform path at a National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (NCUSCR) program on Wednesday, November 13. Please see below for a full recording of the event.
