About the Authors
  • This is the first Western-language research monograph detailing significant developments in consumer law and policy across the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), underpinned by a growing middle class and implementation of the ASEAN Economic Community from 2016. Eight chapters examine consumer law topics within ASEAN member states (such as product safety and consumer contracts) and across them (financial and health services), as well as the interface with competition law and the nature of ASEAN as a unique and evolving international organisation. The authors include insights from extensive fieldwork, partly through consultancies for the ASEAN Secretariat, to provide a reliable, contextual and up-to-date analysis of consumer law and policy development across the region. The volume also draws on and contributes to theories of law and development in multiple fields, including comparative law, political economy and regional studies.

    • Offers detailed analysis of the development and current implementation of core areas of consumer law across Southeast Asia
    • Provides insights into a unique organisation by comparing the development and current features of ASEAN and explores its future potential in consumer law and policy making
    • Builds on extensive fieldwork in many ASEAN member states and provides reliable and contextual analysis of consumer law and policy in the region

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Four leading Australian consumer law scholars have produced a book that provides valuable insights into the development of consumer law in the ASEAN region. They throw light on consumer law in under-researched jurisdictions and their reflections will help develop consumer policy in the region and deepen our understanding of consumer policy globally. Hopefully it will provide an impetus for further ASEAN initiatives.' Geraint Howells, Dean and Chair Professor of Commercial Law, City University of Hong Kong
