TL;DR: In this article, the authors present an interdisciplinary effort at tracing the respective roles of law and diplomacy in the relations of the European Union (EU) with its trade and investment partners in Asia.
Abstract: tive dynamics between law and diplomacy on international trade and investment. It brings together lawyers and political scientists from Europe and Asia in an interdisciplinary effort at tracing the respective roles of law and diplomacy in the relations of the European Union (EU) with its trade and investment partners in Asia. Focusing on trade and investment relations with Asia, the EU presents a particularly interesting case, as it has been a strong proponent of a rules-based international economic order for years and a frequent user of the formal procedures established in international treaties in case of disputes. At the same time, it has kept diplomatically active to adjust dispute management and international agreements to the needs and demands of the partners involved. Furthermore, not only is this region of crucial importance due to the presence of both vigorous emerging economies, like China, India and Vietnam, and more established partners, like Japan, EU–Asia relations also present a broad set of economic disputes and recent negotiation efforts analyzed in the contributions to this volume. This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of international trade/economic law, EU politics, EU external relations (law), international relations, diplomacy and more broadly to international relations and Asian studies.

TL;DR: The authors argued that solidarity within member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations does not prevent economically advanced member countries from participating in the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership for market access; nonetheless, the need of Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar should be taken into account through special and differential treatment in Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership negotiations.
Abstract: In the wake of the mega-free trade agreements, all of the 10 member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations are determined to participate in the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and to maintain the centrality of the Association of South East Asian Nations whereas Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, and Vietnam have also opted for the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership. In view of divergent positions of member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations, this paper asks two questions: empirically, what drives individual member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations toward the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership or Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership; normatively, do the different positions embraced by member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations weaken the coherence of external relations of the Association of South East Asian Nations and undermine its centrality in Asian regionalism. I argued that Singapore’s participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership is mainly motivated by its wish to set the rules of free trade agreements in the Asian Pacific. Brunel aims to diversify its domestic economy and to undergo economic reform through international commitments. Vietnam and Malaysia joined the Trans-Pacific Partnership with a view to accessing American market, but Vietnam’s Trans-Pacific Partnership participation should also be understood in the context of its aggressive free trade agreements strategy. This paper argues that solidarity within member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations does not prevent economically advanced member countries from participating in the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership for market access; nonetheless, the need of Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar should be taken into account through special and differential treatment in Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership negotiations.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors examine the progress of regional integration of ASEAN 3 with special focus on its legal infrastructure, including the AEC, political security community, and Socio-Cultural Community.
Abstract: Ten years after the outbreak of the Asian financial crisis in 1997/1998, 2008 experienced another financial turmoil. This time, those Asian countries that were seriously struck by the Asian financial crisis are opting for a regional approach. They are not turning to the International Monetary Fund (the IMF), and are trying to deal with this financial crisis by themselves. As most Asian countries sought assistance from the IMF during the Asian financial crisis in 1997–1998, the change in their attitude in this financial crisis is worthy of investigation. The Asian financial crisis highlighted the crucial role of regional integration, and thus offered the stimulus for economic integration in this region. Firstly, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations ( “ASEAN”) brought forward their programme of an ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA) from 2008 to 2002. Secondly, ASEAN 3 (ASEAN plus China, Japan and the Republic of Korea, hereinafter “Korea”) process was institu- tionalised in Malaysia in December 1997, with the aim of reacting against the financial crisis and ensuring their capacity to maintain financial stability. The experiences during the Asian financial crisis drove Asian countries to safeguard themselves against the next financial turmoil, and strengthened their determination for further economic integration.The coming into being of ASEAN 3 can be deemed as a response to the Asian financial crisis.Up to now, there have been several significant events in relation to the regional economic integration in ASEAN and its East Asian Dialogue Partners. Firstly, the ASEAN Charter entered into effect on 15 December 2008. The ASEAN Charter envisages the establishment of three communities (or three pillars) under the framework of ASEAN: the ASEAN Economic Community (the AEC); the ASEAN Political-Security Community; and the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community. The 2004 Protocol on Enhanced Dispute Settlement Mechanism is a vehicle to enhance the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community. Externally, negotiations for free trade agreements based on the framework agreement between ASEAN and its East Asian Dialogue Partners have been fruitful. By 2008, ASEAN had signed agreements on trade in goods with China, Japan and Korea. In addition, agreements on trade in services have been signed between ASEAN and China and Korea. A dispute settlement mechanism modelling the 1994 ASEAN Protocol on Dispute Settlement Mechanism, arbitral tribunals in essence, is included in the free trade agreements between ASEAN and China, Japan, and Korea. From an institutional perspective, the ASEAN Charter, the ASEAN Protocol on Enhanced Dispute Settlement Mechanism and the dispute settlement mechanism provided in the free trade agreements between ASEAN and its East Asian dialogue partners provide a good foundation for a deeper integration in the ASEAN 3 process.This paper aims to examine the progress of regional integration of ASEAN 3 with special focus on its legal infrastructure. With this aim, I will firstly examine the legal architecture of the AEC under the ASEAN Charter. I will then review the progress of economic integration in ASEAN 3, including initiatives within ASEAN and free trade agreements between ASEAN and its East Asian counterparts. I will cover both economic/trade integration and financial/monetary cooperation.3 Finally, I will analyze dispute settlement mechanisms provided within ASEAN and by those agreements signed by ASEAN and China, Japan and Korea. This paper ends with a short conclusion summarizing major arguments.
