Asian Conflict of Laws: East and South East Asia

Regional instruments for the recognition of foreign decisions, together with harmonised rules of conflict of laws, are useful to promote legal certainty and to enhance commercial transactions both within the region and with other areas of the world. Among the countries of East and South East Asia, however, there is no such harmonisation. Therefore, a comprehensive overview of the various approaches to private international law among these crucially important trade jurisdictions--such as this very useful book provides--is an essential resource for both practitioners and academics.

Twenty-four local specialists--practitioners, consultants, and academics with particular expertise in private international law and international litigation in their respective jurisdictions--provide thorough commentary and analysis on fourteen jurisdictions--the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Mongolia, The Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam. The authors describe in a clear and logically structured way practice and procedure regarding:
- codification of private international law and relevance of case law;
- jurisdiction of local courts in foreign-related cases (including choice of court and arbitration clauses);
- applicable law;
- international civil procedure; and
- recognition and enforcement of foreign (judicial and arbitral) decisions.

The book is primarily designed to increase the knowledge of non-Asian companies on the specific frameworks regulating international litigation and enforcement of foreign decisions in the region, and will thus be of great practical value to corporate counsel and other practitioners, officials, and policymakers. In addition, it takes a major step forward in the ongoing academic and policy debate to coordinate efforts in harmonising private international law in the region
