APDR Working Papers Series

The APDR Working Paper Series is an important element of the dissemination strategy for research findings in the Asia Pacific Dispute Resolution (APDR) Project supported by the Major Collaborative Research Initiatives (MCRI) program of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). APDR Working Papers are works in progress that have been presented at APDR conferences, workshops and other events. These papers reflect the rich academic and policy discussions that take place during our APDR project events. To accommodate our colleagues, some papers are published in their original language with an English language abstract.

Editorial Board:

Dr. Pitman Potter (University of British Columbia)

Dr. Lesley A. Jacobs (York University)

Dr. Sarah Biddulph  (Melbourne University)


Each volume corresponds to one of the five themes in which the project’s research findings are grouped for dissemination, with particular focus around trade policy implications and the right to: (1) development; (2) good governance; (3) health; (4) labour and (5) poverty/inequality:

Volume 1: Development

Volume 2: Good Governance

Volume 3: Health

Volume 4: Labour

Volume 5: Poverty/Inequality.
