Abstract

On 22 September 2011, the Arrangement between the Association of East Asian Relations and the Interchange Association for the mutual Cooperation on the Liberalization, Promotion and Protection of Investment was concluded. This agreement, though without international law character in itself, may trigger unilateral acceptance of international law obligations by Taiwan or Japan. It is this unilateral acceptance, and not the agreement between a governmental entity (on the Taiwan side) and a non-governmental entity (on Japan's side), that creates international obligations stipulated in the agreement.
