The Asia-Pacific Journal of Ocean Law and Policy explores ocean law and policy issues in the most economically dynamic region in the world: the Asia-Pacific. These ocean spaces are crucial to international trade and are becoming increasingly important in terms of marine resources and services. Hotly contested, the region is subject to enhanced threats such as pollution, conflicting activities, over-exploitation and environmental degradation. Escalating ocean governance challenges coupled with mounting tensions in the region have made studies focusing on this area an especially pertinent topic for scholarly research and consideration in securing and maintaining peace in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

Brill Research Perspectives in International Investment Law and Arbitration provides a systematic review of key topics in this increasingly important area of international law and practice. Foreign investment (particularly FDI) continues to be a catalyst for development. To promote and protect the flow of such investments, countries worldwide have entered into thousands of investment treaties and domestic investment laws, which requires them to protect foreign investment in their territories. These treaties also allow foreign investors to directly sue governments before international arbitration tribunals for treaty violations ranging from old-fashioned “expropriation without compensation” to violations of more modern protections such as the so-called “fair and equitable” standard of treatment. The claims raise a mix of public international law, private and public law, and public policy issues requiring an examination of the legitimacy of a government’s exercise of its core functions including regulatory (involving taxation, health, and environment), administrative, and police powers and the balance of those against foreign investors’ rights under the treaties. This journal addresses these issues and aims to provide an authoritative reference guide for scholars and practitioners.

Brill Research Perspectives in International Water Law is a hybrid journal and reference publication for research output on shared freshwater resources. Population growth, economic activities, environmental degradation, and climate change have exacerbated competition and ignited disputes over water resources (both surface water and groundwater) shared by two or more states. The entry into force of the United Nations Watercourses Convention has refocused the attention of the world community on shared water resources and underscored the pressing need for their equitable and sustainable sharing, inclusive and proper management, and environmental protection.

Each issue comprises a single, uniquely focused monograph that explores these aspects and addresses international, regional, and bilateral agreements and arrangements as well as thematic matters related to shared water resources. The journal’s target contributors and readers include international water law professors, researchers, practitioners, and graduate and undergraduate students.
