This forward-looking book examines dispute resolution issues in the context of Belt and Road Initiative dealings between parties in ASEAN Member States, China and other trade partners. It discusses a range of commercial dispute issues and economic agreements including free trade agreements and investment agreements, both bilateral and regional.
This timely book reconciles the competing objectives of intellectual property and
international investment agreements. Throughout, Pratyush Nath Upreti examines the
issues arising from recent intellectual property disputes in investment arbitration
from the perspectives of national and international legal orders, providing a
normative analysis to resolve the tension brought by intellectual property and
investor-state dispute settlement interactions.
