The Commission for Overall Law-based Governance of East China's Shandong province has released a range of measures for cultivating the rule of law culture.

Among them is a long-standing mechanism for promoting the Constitution, which requires the inclusion of the Constitution into the reading list of leading officials at various levels and the publicity of the Constitution in 10 areas including rural areas, communities and schools.

Measures will also be taken to enhance citizens' legal awareness and literacy, including implementation of an accountability system requiring law enforcement authorities to shoulder the work of legal publicity and the spread of legal knowledge in the process of legislation, law enforcement and judicial activities through case study.

The commission also plans to combine rule of law with traditional cultures and art works, utilize new media platforms, and set up a special team to publicize the rule of law culture.

The promotion work will be incorporated into the province's overall planning for promoting the rule of law, its public cultural service system and its cultural industry development plan, according to the commission.
