Regional Judicial Institutions and Economic Cooperation: Lessons for Asia?
Voeten, Erik | November 2010
Why is Asia lagging behind other regions in creating regional judicial institutions? What lessons from elsewhere could be valuable to Asian regional economic integration? This paper shows that Asian states are not unusually averse to refer inter-state disputes to global judicial institutions. Moreover, Asian states are not unique in their reluctance to resolve regional inter-state disputes through judicial means. The most valuable lesson for Asia from experiences elsewhere is the role that regional courts can play in resolving disputes between administrative agencies and private parties about the implementation of international law.
