This roundtable, organized by the ASIL-Law in the Pacific Rim Region Interest Group, centers on Asia’s response to the “Free and Open Indo-Pacific” (FOIP) from dispute resolution and trade perspectives. We seek to address the following issues: What are Asian countries’ legal and political response to the US agenda? How will recent diplomatic developments of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), China and India counter US unilateralism? In a similar vein, how will Asia’s alternative strategies, such as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), the Comprehensive and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), shape international law and commercial transactions?
