Brief introduction of the reporter: SHENG Hongsheng is a male professor at the School of International Law, Shanghai University of Political Science and Law, born in October 1960.

Professor SHENG Hongsheng, who has dedicated himself to teaching and researching international law for an extended period, offers courses on various subjects, including public international law, international organizational law, international humanitarian law, and international criminal law. He has an impressive publication record, having authored over 70 papers, including two in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), and has contributed seven works to academic journals both domestically and internationally.

Regarding the report's content, it highlights the substantial transformations that the international legal system has undergone in the 70 years following the conclusion of World War II. The relationship between China and the post-war international legal system has been mutually influential. While China has been significantly impacted by the international legal system, it has also played a role in shaping it through its own capabilities and approaches. Due to this close interaction, China has the potential to serve as a constructive force in the international legal system as it strives to establish the rule of law at both domestic and international levels.
