Overview

Northeast Asian Perspectives on International Law: Contemporary Issues and Challenges contends that international law is not only poised to take a bigger role in bringing about a resolution to the modern questions confronted by Japan, the People’s Republic of China, and North and South Korea, but that international lawyers of the region are working to bring about greater regional cooperation and integration as seen in other regions in the world.
