This edited volume is a timely and important contribution to the growing field of public law discourse in Asia. Surveying many of the important jurisdictions in Asia including Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, India, South Korea and the Philippines, the book addresses the recent developments and experiences in the field of public interest litigation. The book offers a comparative perspective on an important aspect of public law asking crucial questions about the role of the state and how private citizens around Asia have increasingly used the forms, procedures and substance of public law to advance public and political aims.

As well as chapters analyzing specific jurisdictions in South Asia the volume also contains a number of pieces looking at important topical issues surrounding public interest litigation in the region. These chapters consider whether PIL is an appropriate tool for addressing the grievances of various groups including refugees, victims of human trafficking and those who have experienced sex and religious discrimination.
