        Trust in the Law | Wide Angle: Window into Global History

        International and domestic pressure has forced China to reexamine its legal tradition that has long served the power and authority of the state as opposed to safeguarding individual liberties and freedoms. Although China has set forth reforms allowing for the development of civil rights for its citizens, senior judges and officials are still appointed and employed by its one-party government. In this video from Wide Angle, Chinese citizens air their frustrations and grievances with a government that has not fully modernized and is unable to meet the increasing demands of its populace.
