Chinese Private International Law


Chinese Private International Law

Edited by Xiaohong Liu and Zhengyi Zhang

Written with the assistance of a team of lecturers at the Shanghai University of Political Science and Law, this book is the leading reference on Chinese private international law in English. The chapters systematically cover the whole of Chinese private international law, not just questions likely to arise in commercial matters, but also in family, succession, cross-border insolvency, intellectual property, competition (antitrust), and environmental disputes.  The chapters do not merely cover the traditional conflict of law areas of jurisdiction, applicable law (choice of law), and enforcement.  They also look into conflict of law questions arising in arbitration and assess China’s involvement in the harmonisation of private international law globally and regionally within the Belt and Road Initiative. Similarly to the Japanese and Indonesian volumes in the Series, this book presents Chinese conflict of laws through a combination of common and civil law analytical techniques and perspectives, providing readers worldwide with a more profound and comprehensive understanding of Chinese private international law.


Xiaohong Liu is Professor and President and Zhengyi Zhang is Associate Professor and Deputy Director of the International Affairs Office, both at Shanghai University of Political Science and Law, China.
