(State) crime and political party regulation

Aleksandar Marsavelski
This seminar presents a critique of the notion some of the most serious crimes that mankind could imagine were acts largely committed, instigated or condoned by ruling political parties. It argues that instead of state crime, we need to speak about regime crime.

Zhou Fohai and the creation of the 'Peace Government' 1939–1940

Brian Martin
The focus of this seminar is Zhou Fohai. It analyses Zhou’s advocacy of a ‘peace government’ and his understanding that such a government needed to be seen as the legitimate extension of the Guomindang Party–State. Because of his forthright stand on the need to maintain the continuity of the Guomindang Party–State, Wang Jingwei designated Zhou as his main negotiator with the Japanese. Zhou also worked to set up a security service to protect members of the ‘peace movement’ from Chongqing’s security organisations. By 1940, Zhou had achieved victory for his view of the need for a strong ‘peace government’, which then took on the characteristics of an alternative Chinese Central Government.
