The universality of good faith and moral behaviour: A challenge for the principles of Asian contract law

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The principle of good faith is fundamental in the law of international trade. This global consensus derives from its origin in European civil law. A fair question to be asked is whether there is also a substantial consensus on its content and operation as it moves away from a European location. Also it should be discussed whether the principle of good faith has a place in contemporary Asian principles of contract law.
