The Sixth Plenum of the Central Committee is the annual meeting of the top 400 officials in the Communist Party of China.

Two years ago, the plenum set out a new definition of the rule of law.

This year's plenum focused on Party Discipline but it had important implications for the Chinese Constitution, and especially for the institutional rules of succession within the Communist Party.

At this panel event, four legal scholars - Eva Pils (KCL) Liu Yiqiang (Chinese Initiative on International Law), Natalie Mrockova (St John's College) and Guo Yicong (Wadham College) - will put the plenum in constitutional context.
