Book description

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.


'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

'[an excellent example of how comparative law] scholarship can incisively deconstruct unfamiliar legal systems and make them more accessible to a wider audience ... [that] clearly exposes and explains the challenges which each system faces on its own terms ... an admirable achievement.'
