Book Launch: International Commercial and Investor-State Arbitration – Australia and Japan in Regional and Global Contexts
Launched by the Hon James Leslie Bain Allsop AO, Chief Justice, Federal Court of Australia
This book of 12 selected, updated and new essays combines analysis of international commercial and investment treaty arbitration to examine how they have been framed by the twin tensions of ‘in/formalisation’ and ‘glocalisation’, including in the COVID-19 pandemic era. The book focuses on Australia and Japan in their attempts to become regional hubs for international arbitration and dispute resolution services in the increasingly influential Asia-Pacific context as well as a global context.
