Abstract This article surveys the Chinese response to SARS in law and politics. Over the course of the spread of SARS the partuy-state qualified legal reform strategy that was designed to provide new human rights protection and to curtail the state's arbitrary resort to policy and regulation without the benefit of law. This immediate response revealed the underlying problems of rule-of-law making, but the experience of SARS later informed the creation of new and improved law on infectious disease that reiterated the original assumptions of legal refrom within a newly developing approach to the public management of health crisis.
