International Investment Treaties and Arbitration Across Asia' brings together leading academics and practitioners to examine whether and how the Asian region has or may become a significant ̀rule maker' in contemporary international investment law and dispute resolution. The editors introduce FDI trends and regulations, investment treaties and arbitration across Asia. Authors add country studies for the ten member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations as well as an overview of ASEAN treaties, or examine other potential ̀middle powers' (Korea, Australia and New Zealand collectively) and the emerging ̀big players' (China, Japan and India). Two early chapters present econometric studies of treaty impact on FDI flows, in aggregate as well as for Thailand, while two concluding chapters offer other normative and forward-looking perspectives.0.
