Recent Findings in Financial ADR in the East Asian Region
The book Consumer Financial Dispute Resolution in a Comparative Context published by Cambridge University Press, ties many of these findings together by examining how governments and self-regulatory organizations design and administer financial dispute resolution mechanisms in the context of increasingly turbulent financial markets. It presents comparative research about the development and design of these mechanisms in East Asia, North America and Europe. Using a comparative methodology and drawing on empirical findings from a multi-jurisdictional survey, the book examines the emergence of global principles that influence the design of financial dispute resolution models, considers the structural variations between the ombuds and arbitration systems and offers practical proposals for reform.
