ABLI holds workshop for phase 2 of its Foreign Judgments project
Today ABLI held a workshop to discuss common principles for the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in the ten ASEAN member states, Australia, China, Japan, India and South Korea.
The workshop is part of the second phase of ABLI's Foreign Judgments project.
The first phase of the project identified the existing recognition and enforcement of foreign judgment rules in ASEAN, Australia, China, Japan, India and South Korea and culminated in the publication of reports for each country in ABLI's Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Asia. You can download a copy of Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Asia for free here.
The second phase of the project is an examination of whether, based on the Reports produced in the first phase, sufficient areas of commonality exist for convergence in this area of the law, and how convergence may best be achieved.
