Abstract

Examines, by a comparison with the approaches taken in the UK and Australia, the extent to which corporate criminal liability under the Chinese Criminal Law 1997 has developed to include corporate manslaughter. Reviews the emergence of corporate criminal liability in China, the UK and Australian provisions on corporate manslaughter, and how the concepts of negligence and strict liability together with the Chinese Work Safety Law 2002 could be used in China to regulate corporate manslaughter.
