Laogai (Template:Zh), the abbreviation for Template:Zh (Template:Lang-zh), which means "reform through labor", refers to abolished criminal justice system and has been used to refer to the use of penal labour and prison farms in the People's Republic of China (PRC). Láogǎi is different from láojiào, or re-education through labor, which was the abolished administrative detention system for people who were not criminals but had committed minor offenses, and was intended to "reform offenders into law-abiding citizens".
