I. What's the Resettlement, Assistance and Education Work?
The resettlement, assistance and education work is the work under the unified leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Party committee and government and based on social forces that provides persons released upon completion of sentence with non-compulsory guidance, assistance, education and administration so as to help them to reintegrate into the society.
Resettlement refers to the arrangement of living and employment; assistance and education mainly refers to help and education. What's more, help and education contain the elements of support and administration respectively. Resettlement and assistance and education are two aspects that are complementary and inseparable. Resettlement is the premise, while assistance and education is the foundation.
A single government department is not capable of resolving the difficulties and problems faced by persons released upon completion of sentence in their life and work, and it needs the multi-ministerial efforts, including the judicial administration, public security, civil affairs, human resources and social security, etc. Therefore, the resettlement, assistance and education work is a comprehensive management of social security led by Party committees and governments, coordinated by comprehensive administration authorities, handled by judicial administrative departments, assisted by relevant departments and participated by social forces.
