The second thematic volume in the series Studies in Private International Law – Asia looks into direct jurisdiction, that is, the situations in which the courts of 15 key Asian States (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and India) are prepared to hear a case involving cross-border elements. For instance, where parties are habitually resident abroad and a dispute has only some, little or no connection with an Asian state, will the courts of that State accept jurisdiction and hear the case and (if so) on what conditions?

The book looks into establishing jurisdiction not just in commercial matters, but also in matters such as family law and succession, and it analyses the difference of approach between civil and common law countries. The Introduction and Conclusion tease out similarities and differences in the approaches taken by the 15 Asian states with a view to assessing the extent to which those approaches are consistent with or different from each other.
