||The participation of NGOs, the interactions between government and NGOs make the NGOs maintain close relationship with the development of the legal aid system. In fact, according to the formation and development of the legal aid systems between Taiwan and mainland China, it is not difficult to understand the main role that the NGOs have been played in the legal aid systems from the perspective of NGOs.|
In the study, I will indicate the main reasons causing the differences in culture, social development and the values between Taiwan and mainland China based on state-society relations, the governments and NGOs and the foundation of the legal aid systems. It actually affects the legal aid systems owing to the different patterns of thought of the cross straits. Also, it shows different purposes, regulations and methods of the legal aid systems between Taiwan and mainland China.
Under the concept of the influence of civil society to the country, the legal aid system in Taiwan is produced by the cooperation with the government and NGOs. However, the legal aid system in mainland China relies mainly on powers of the government. In this case, it shows that the government is more powerful than civil society. Although the power of Chinese civil society does exist, it is under the control and supervision of the government. Also, owing to the NGOs are lack of independence and autonomy, they must need to cooperate with the government in order to achieve sustainable and well development.
