U of Melbourne Legal Studies Research Paper No. 162
The increase in transnational litigation before Australian courts has also seen a rise in the number of cases involving foreign states. While a number of doctrines currently exist in Australian law that protect the interests of foreign states from adjudication, their combined effect has been to frustrate the vindication of private rights. Principles of personal jurisdiction and appropriate forum, where private and public interests may be weighed against each other in the decision to adjudicate, offer a more balanced and equitable solution.
