dc.description.abstract The sustained all-out campaigns by the Chinese authorities since 1999 have not been able to eliminate Falun Gong, which has involved millions of followers and spread to more than one hundred countries in the world. The Chinese authorities have labelled Falun Gong as an 'evil sect' to brutally suppress it, but that label does not confirm to the definition of 'evil sect' in the West. There are many ways to define the phenomenon of Falun Gong in the academic perspective. Falun Gong cannot be defined as a religion in term of its ultimate concern, belief system, activities and 'organisation' in particular. Falun Gong can be a Chinese popular belief and practice defying a definition but requiring further research.
