The 2004-2011 period saw a strong rise in the number of cases in China that are settled through court mediation. In 2011, no less than 68 per cent of cases were settled via this route. Yedan Li studies the mediation provided by the courts, and the role the courts play in this process. She also asks how this role can be evaluated according to a comprehensive evaluative framework of court functions which is derived from both the courts’ prototype adjudication function and their political function.
