A Comparative Study of the Prosecution Qualification of Public Interest Litigation

Xin GUAN, Min GUO, Xiumei QI


In the middle of the 20th century, with the constant emergence of various public interest damage cases such as environmental pollution, infringement of consumer rights and interests, etc., every country in the world was exploring to establish a mode of litigation that would be different from the traditional private interest litigation, public interest litigation thus emerged as the times required. In the 21st century today, no matter in the countries of the common law system or the continental law system, they are all perfecting the corresponding public interest litigation system combining their own country’s actual situation. In comparison, our country’s regulation for the prosecution qualification of public interest litigation is still imperfect. This article thus tries to propose some suggestions for this situation from three aspects, i.e., enlarging the subject range for the prosecution of infringement of consumer rights and interests, exerting the main force of procuratorate, and increasing public participation.
