Enforcing Foreign Judgments in China and Chinese Judgments Abroad: Recent Developments and Remaining Challenges

Event date: 17 November 2022
Event time: 12:00 – 13:30
Oxford week: MT 6
Audience: Members of the University
Venue: St Catherine’s College (Room: TBA)
Speaker(s): Dr Jeanne Huang (Associate Professor, The University of Sydney)

On January 24, 2022, the Supreme People’s Court of China issued the Minutes of the National Court’s Symposium on Foreign-Related Commercial and Maritime Trials (“Minutes”), which provide rules for judgment recognition and enforcement (“JRE”) in China when no treaty exists between China and the state of origin or the treaty does not address a particular JRE issue. Later in the year, on August 29, 2022, the European Union and its member states acceded to the 2019 Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters. The Convention will enter into force in September 2023. Given that China has not signed the Convention, this talk aims to help international business actors to plan for the ways in which JRE in China will differ and understand the prospects for China to ratify the Convention.

Dr Huang’s talk and discussion will be followed by a light sandwich lunch. Please email conflictoflaws@law.ox.ac.uk to register your attendance and any dietary requirements.
