Research Center of Innovation and Legal Studies between China and Europe [RICE]
The Research Center brings together the activities of the research projects on Chinese law and legal culture among its members and partners and aims to organize an annual academic series of events, which can take place either in Augsburg or China.
In particular, the Center focuses on comparative law between both countries and the application of economic regulations. Furthermore, the mutual understanding of the Chinese and German legal systems shall be promoted.
In recent years, the strategic relationship between the EU, Germany and China as mutual cooperation partners has developed rapidly. The People's Republic and the European association of states are already close partners in the economic and trade sectors. In the last two years, negotiations of the EU-China Investment and Free Trade Agreement have been pushed forward in order to establish a legal system for a common economic and trade area.
The Research Center of Innovation and Legal Studies between China and Europe (RICE) under the direction of Professor Dr. Thomas M.J. Möllers sees itself as a link between German, European and Chinese jurisprudence and legal practice. In addition to its associate members, the Research Center is supported by our Chinese visiting professors.
This book critically analyses the various approaches of public and private law enforcement and their effectiveness across several jurisdictions on the example of one topical and global collective damage event with far reaching consequences for both, consumers and investors: the Dieselgate. (...)
Mr. Zhiaho Du (杜志浩)and Dr. Liuhua Shen have translated the German work "Juristische Arbeitstechnik und wissenschaftliches Arbeiten" (Legal Work Techniques and Scientific Work), which has already been published in its 9th edition, into Chinese. The Chinese book was sold out in a very short time with 5,000 copies, so that a reprint became necessary after only a few months.
Mr. Du, who recently received his doctorate in Göttingen, also translates Professor Möllers' "Juristische Methodenlehre".
Professor Dr. Thomas M.J. Möllers went on a research trip to China from 12-23 September 2019, during which he gave lectures and guest lectures at several Chinese universities. At the University of Political Science and Law (CUPL) in Beijing, he held a guest professorship and gave a series of lectures on "Introduction into German Civil and Business Law" to give Chinese students an insight into German civil law. He gave lectures at the Jiliang and Zhe Jiang University in Hangzhou. There was also a press conference at the Peking University in Beijing. (...).
