MetadataShow full item record
While China has made significant progress in export control legislation and policy, most of the scholars in the area of nonproliferation and export controls agree that Chinese government lacks the capability to effectively implement those laws and policies. There are various factors that undermine the efficacy of Chinese export control implementation. This paper examines the impact of one of the most important factors, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). This paper analyzes the PLA’s involvement in the command chains of Chinese export control system and in Chinese defense-industrial and military enterprises decision-making. The conclusion is that the PLA, by caring for and protecting its own interests, has become a hindrance to the effective implementation of Chinese export controls.
