Dispute Resolution in Asia was first published in 1998 and was one of the few titles to deal exclusively with the Asian region. This second edition is not only an updated version of the first edition but is also an expanded work. Chapters on India and Indonesia have been added.

The first chapter presents an overview of dispute resolution in Asia and examines the question whether there is an Asian style of dispute resolution. The remaining chapters focus on twelve particular countries. They are important trading countries or countries which are the recipients of substantial foreign investments. This second edition fills the need for increased information on dispute resolution in a region whose economic importance is still growing.

The 2nd edition features:-

  • The examination of dispute resolution in 12 countries provides a much wider spectrum of Asian laws and approaches than is traditional in comparative studies;
  • The work provides a broad coverage in terms of its subject matter: the book is not confined to arbitration or litigation but examines arbitration, litigation and mediation;
  • Contributions vary in style and contents and thus reflect the diversity of legal systems and cultures in Asia;
  • Specialists focus on countries with which contributors have particular expertise or experience;
  • Statistics provided on arbitration centres in Asia.

This is an updated and expanded version of the first edition;

  • a substantial coverage of twelve countries;
  • in addition to chapters on Australia, People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, The Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam, chapters on India and Indonesia have been added;
  • all the contributors are senior lawyers with vast knowledge and experience of dispute resolution in Asia and are experts in their field;
  • country studies are not limited to arbitration or litigation but examines arbitration, litigation and mediation
