New EJIL: Live! Interview with Simon Chesterman on Asia’s Ambivalence about International Law and Institutions: Past, Present and Futures

Published on January 19, 2017        Author: 

A new episode of EJIL: Live!, the Journal’s official podcast, is now available. In this episode the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal, Professor Joseph Weiler, speaks with Professor Simon Chesterman, Dean and Professor at the National University of Singapore, about his article, “Asia’s Ambivalence about International Law and Institutions: Past, Present and Futures”, which appears in EJIL, Volume 27, Issue 4.

The conversation takes up the issues advanced by Chesterman in his article on Asia’s ambivalence to international law and institutions, and explores them further. Taking as its starting point the paradox of Asia benefiting most from international law and global governance institutions whilst remaining the least likely to participate in such institutions, the conversation looks at the historical and other reasons for this ambivalence and moves on to discuss possible futures for the involvement of Asian states in international law institutions.

The interview was recorded at the National University of Singapore.
