This work attempts to provide a means of harmonizing some aspects of cross-border civil and commercial litigation within the member states of the ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations).
These aspects include the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments as well as the jurisdictional bases involved in the litigation process. The work culminates in the production of a multilateral ""double-convention"" which is similar in principle to that of the Brussels Convention.
The book aims at providing a pragmatic example that can be utilized by the ASEAN member states on how to harmonize those vital aspects of cross-border litigation and ultimately assist in the acceleration of the development of the ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA). There is currently no existing legal mechanism in place that can deal with the problems and disputes of foreign private investors and businesses that aim to take advantage of the AFTA by conducting cross-border transactions within several ASEAN member states.
This work delves into the relevant civil and commercial laws of the ASEAN member states and looks at examples and solutions that have been faced and overcome by courts in England, the United States and the European Court of Justice. It is the first book of its kind that examines and discusses the individual private international commercial laws of the individual ASEAN member states and looks into important business issues such as forum selection clauses, forum shopping, multiplicity of actions, and injunctive relief offered by the courts of the region.
The reader is also given an insight into how the legal systems and laws of those countries operate. This work has also taken into account the local aspects of business life in ASEAN and offers some original suggestions on how best to achieve harmonization.
