This book brings together leading legal scholars and practitioners from across the Asia-Pacific region to probe the ways in which trusts law has been adapted to meet the specific needs of various jurisdictions, and to analyse their causes and effects.

The contributions discuss how the trust structure, with its inherent malleability, has been adapted to meet a diverse set of needs, including social, religious, economic, commercial, or even historical needs. But in most instances, those needs - and the ways in which trusts law has been adapted to meet them - are not unique to a single jurisdiction: they often (coincidentally or otherwise) find much in common with others.

By making its readers aware of the commonality of needs in Asia-Pacific, this book aims to encourage coordination and cooperation in utilising trusts law to address shared concerns across the region.
