Abstract: Having and giving "face" has always been important in Chinese society. It is not surprising, therefore, that the right of reputation has found its place in the legislation of the PRC when laws were re-introduced in the 1980ies. While the legal provisions seem pretty straightforward, court cases show that the Chinese legal system and Chinese society are very much different from their counterparts in the West.
"Das Gesicht wahren" ist in der chinesischen Gesellschaft sehr bedeutend. Es ist denn auch nicht weiter verwunderlich, dass dem Ehrenschutz ein Platz in der Gesetzgebung eingeräumt wurde, als diese ab 1980 in der Volksrepublik China wieder eingeführt wurde. Auch wenn die Gesetzesbestimmungen auf den ersten Blick recht klar erscheinen, zeigt eine Analyse der Rechtsprechung, dass das chinesische Rechtssystem und die chinesische Gesellschaft doch ganz anders sind als in der westlichen Hemisphäre.
