  • International Law as between Northeast Asian States: A commentary on Selected Sources
    Asif H Qureshi, Yoon-Kyung Lee & Kim, Pyounghwa (Updated January 2017)   1. Introduction   Northeast Asia (NEA) comprises in the sense of its common description in its regional setting, of China, Korea and Japan. This description however is not necessarily a neutral self-evident geographical encapsulation of the region. It is a combination of geography and common racial, cultural, linguistic, religious and historic heritage that configures in the description. Certainly, common Western conceptions of the region are often less discerning and group Northeast Asia into the Far East. The common geography and heritage however are marred by historic conflicts. In the face of it therefore the description Northeast Asia is also an aspirational description for some form of solidarity even if distant. Moreover, this need for solidarity in the face of adversity is particularly spurred by the regional economic success and its further potential. In this regional milieu, therefore an enquiry into the setting of international law and its role in the region has much to commend it --- in particular as an ‘arbitrator’, as a facilitator, as a normative force --- including as a vehicle for the external impact of the region. There is a dearth of legal analysis of international law from a regional perspective. Th
