The purpose of this chapter is to demonstrate how China's economic reform programme of the 1980s led to an opening of the country to new ideas, and to increased interaction with global regimes in all major issue areas. It provides some early sense of the extent to which the global level matters, not only in its ability to influence the internal organization of the state but also in its capacity to shape the image of a particular state held by insiders and outsiders. The intention is not to discuss in detail the global dialogue with China on human rights, but rather to demonstrate the context of China's participation in this complex web of international regimes that characterize contemporary global society, including that of the human rights regime. The different sections of the chapter are: The Rationale for Reform; Transnationalism and the Role of Ideas; Participation in International Regimes; The New Professional Élites; and Conclusion.

Keywords:   China, China's economic reform programme, economic reform, global consequences, global society, human rights, human rights regime, international regimes, new professional élites, participation, transnationalism
