Breda, Vito (2019) Introduction [to Legal transplants in East Asia and Oceania]. In: Legal transplants in East Asia and Oceania. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, United Kingdom , pp. 1-15. ISBN 978-1-108-47529-7


Three decades ago, a series of legal reforms in the People’s Republic of China prepared the conditions for formidable East Asian economic growth. The development
has not been without costs. The unbridled development has proceeded, sometimes, without considering safeguards for investors, workers, the environment, or individual rights. There are, however, indications that legal systems in the regions are preparing for a new wave of legal reforms. The aim of this Volume is twofold. Firstly, it reports on the latest phase of development in the institutional structures of the regions aimed at increasing trust among international traders, the judicial procedures aimed at the resolution of disputes, the management of environmental issues and the protection of rights.
