Recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in civil and commercial matters in the PRC, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan

M. Yuan



    Foreign judgment recognition and enforcement is an old topic. However, nowadays, it catches new attention on the background of globalization, a process within which countries around the world are becoming more closely connected than ever with each other. Due to its double nature (i.e. both public authority and personal interests are involved), the issue is quite complicated. In addition, when it comes to four Chinese jurisdictions (the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan), it becomes even more complex as though each of them is of its independent legal system, and the four jurisdictions are of the same sovereignty. The sensitive political relationship within these jurisdictions makes the issue problematic. The dissertation starts with detailed discussion and analysis of the current foreign judgment recognition and enforcement laws in the four jurisdictions. The discussion and analysis then is followed by a brief comparison between legislation of the four jurisdictions, trying to present an overview of the issue in the Greater China.
