Forming Transnational Dispute Settlement Norms

Soft Law and the Role of UNCITRAL's Regional Centre for Asia and the Pacific

Shahla F. Ali

This thought-provoking book examines whether regional centres associated with global legal institutions facilitate expanded citizen engagement in global soft law making. Through an analysis of empirical research into the role of decentralized soft law making in the East Asian region, it investigates the influence of such regional centres in overcoming representational deficits in the design of cross-border dispute settlement norms.

International Commercial and Investor-State Arbitration

Australia and Japan in Regional and Global Contexts

Luke Nottage

This thought-provoking book combines analysis of international commercial and investment treaty arbitration in order to examine how they have been framed by the twin tensions of ‘in/formalisation’ and ‘glocalisation’. Taking a comparative approach, 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.

The need to balance economic growth and sustainable development remains a shared goal within the international community. A method of achieving this balance is by promoting a green economy, whereby states can continue to pursue economic growth whilst reducing the environmental and social footprint originating from their economic activities. International trade law is now confronted with emerging challenges where paradigms of free trade conflict with climate change policies. The World Trade Organization, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and other multilateral trade agreements play a central role in maintaining a system of open international trade to ensure that states do not unjustifiably discriminate between foreign and locally produced goods and services. This chapter examines the varying challenges arising from the intersection of climate change policy and international trade law. In doing so, it explores how climate change action can operationalize concepts that are inherent in both international trade and environmental law, namely, common but differentiated responsibilities and special and differentiated treatment to illustrate that the two, distinct legal regimes share the same path towards achieving sustainable development.
