test a Western theory of procedural justice in a Eastern society
What is it about?
General population usually assess the police from two aspects: whether the officers protect their procedural rights and carry out their functions. Also, there is a difference of policing in rural and urban areas, which may lead to different public perceptions. This study uses empirical data collected from rural and urban Taiwan, a relatively young democratic country, to test this theoretical framework developed in Western countries.
Why is it important?
Prior empirical studies in Chinese societies often conclude that people cannot tell the difference between procedural rights and outcome performance of the police. This study found the opposite. Further, there is a rural vs. urban difference.
