Register Your Interest Now: Asian Principles for the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments
In January 2018, the Asian Business Law Institute (ABLI) published Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Asia, edited by Associate Professor Adeline Chong of Singapore Management University as Lead of the Foreign Judgments Project.
Shortly, we will release a related, but far more ambitious, publication titled Asian Principles for the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments as phase 2 output of the Project.
Based on the structure of the classic Dicey, Morris and Collins, the Asian Principles comprise 13 general principles for the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments which are common among the ten ASEAN member states, plus Australia, China, India, Japan and South Korea.
Among other things, the principles cover the rules on international (or "indirect") jurisdiction, reciprocity, the enforcement of non-money judgments, public policy, due process and inconsistent judgments.
The Asian Principles will be released in eBook and hardcopy formats. Further details (including the table of contents) are available here.
