Overview

The reception of the trust in civil law jurisdictions has generated considerable conceptual debate internationally and in East Asia. In Trust Law in Asian Civil Law Jurisdictions, the authors: • provide a detailed comparative examination of trusts laws in Asian civil law jurisdictions from both operational and theoretical perspectives; • discuss the reception of the trust laws in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and China and the challenges facing them; • engage in in-depth comparative inquiries as to how these Asian legal systems resolve questions pertaining to the trust; and • evaluate the distinctive features of Asian trusts and how they are moulded to suit the civilian legal frameworks within which they are situated. The analysis intersects with the Trento trust project in Europe, but also differs from it by providing valuable perspectives of the 'Asian' approaches to trusts researchers in Asia and the Anglophone world at large.
