About the Asian Yearbook of International Law
The principal means by which the Foundation seeks to accomplish its aims and purposes is the publication of the Asian Yearbook of International Law. The Editorial Board of the Yearbook will, in accordance with the general policy laid down in the Foundation’s charter, “foster the free expression and exchange of views” and select relevant material impartially, ensuring that “the highest standards of scholarship, and moral and ethical values prevalent in Asia, are maintained”. The Yearbook is published in English, as being the international language most widely used and understood in Asia. The Asian Yearbook of International Law is a major refereed publication dedicated to international law issues as seen primarily from an Asian perspective. It is the first publication of its kind edited by a team of leading international law scholars from across Asia.
Launched in 1991, the Asian Yearbook of International Law is a major internationally-refereed yearbook dedicated to international legal issues as seen primarily from an Asian perspective. It is published under the auspices of the Foundation for the Development of International Law (DILA) in collaboration with the Handong International Law School in South Korea. When it was launched, the Yearbook was the first publication of its kind, edited by a team of leading international law scholars from across Asia. It provides a forum for the publication of articles in the field of international law, and other Asian international legal topics.
The objects of the Yearbook are two-fold. First, to promote research, study and writing in the field of international law in Asia; and second, to provide an intellectual platform for the discussion and dissemination of Asian views and practices on contemporary international legal issues.
Each volume of the Yearbook contains articles and shorter notes, a section on State Practice, an overview of the Asian states’ participation in multilateral treaties and succinct analysis of recent international legal developments in Asia, as well as book reviews. We believe this publication to be of importance and use to anyone working on international law and in Asian studies.
In keeping with DILA’s commitment to encouraging scholarship in international law as well as in disseminating such scholarship, its Governing Board has decided to make the Yearbook open access from 2010 (volume 16) onwards.
