Charting the New Frontiers of International Dispute Resolution in the Asia-Pacific


Far from being marginal to developments in international dispute resolution, the Asia-Pacific region has moved to the center of global attention. The increasing importance of international dispute resolution in the Asia-Pacific coincides with the growing cross-border investment in the region. The development of international litigation, arbitration and mediation in the Asia-Pacific as cross-border mechanisms of dispute resolution has not only mirrored, but has also sought to respond intelligently to the commercial and investment needs that arise out of the continuous economic development of Asia-Pacific jurisdictions. Meanwhile, the Asia-Pacific region has witnessed a growth of significant international commercial courts in the region, taking advantage of both Western experiences on legal hubs and Hague Judgments Conventions on judgment mobility facilitation. The impact of new frontiers of international dispute resolution in the Asia-Pacific goes beyond the region, as it not only involves Western investors investing in the region but also influences dispute resolution practices in the West. In this webinar, the American Society of International Law's Asia-Pacific Interest Group will lead the conversation in this field.
