Jump-starting the conversation on recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in Asia
ABLI's Foreign Judgments Project and its first-phase output, Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Asia, are now cited in most journal articles or publications which address the issue of recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in the region.
