Lin & Kysar: Climate Change Litigation in the Asia Pacific

Jolene Lin
(National Univ. of Singapore) & Douglas A. Kysar (Yale Univ.) have published Climate Change Litigation in the Asia Pacific (Cambridge Univ. Press 2020). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:
This is the first scholarly examination of climate change litigation in the Asia Pacific region. Bringing legal academics and lawyers from the Global South and Global North together, this book provides rich insights into how litigation can galvanize climate action in countries including Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia and China. Written in clear and accessible language, the fourteen chapters in this book shed light on the important question of how litigation may unfold as a potential regulatory pathway towards decarbonization in the world's most populous region.
