China has developed a comprehensive legal framework of economic and social regulation at both the central and local levels. It faces a key challenge, however, in terms of achieving compliance. i.e. transforming the written legal norms into behavioural changes in practice. Na Li takes one sector, the construction industry, and investigates how regulated businesses comply with the law in a single regulatory arena, that of work safety rules. She also asks what the broader implications are for managing work safety risks and improving compliance in China.
