Legitimacy of university rules in the eyes of Chinese college students

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Education is not just a systematic way of knowledge transmission but also, and more importantly, a process for the development of critical thinking and citizen engagement. The goal of this presentation is to examine how Chinese college students perceive the legitimacy of their university rules in the contexts of China’s move to rule of law and a system of mass higher education.

This cross-disciplinary study is grounded in legal theory on the validity of rules as well as socio-legal theory on legal consciousness. Data of this study come from focus group interviews with college students in ten universities located in four different Chinese cities as well as individual interviews with students who had been disciplined according to university rules. Through a qualitative data analysis approach called hermeneutic-reconstructive analysis, three types of “rules perception” have been identified among Chinese college students: respect by default, positional power, and imposition of will. These findings are further discussed in relation to the three general orientations of law proposed by legal anthropologists Ewick and Sibley (1998): “before the law,” “with the law,” and “against the law.” The study has broad implications on student affairs, university governance, and citizenship development.
