Access to cross-border commercial justice

Professor Petra Butler is leading a global research project on access to cross-border commercial justice for micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) with researchers from country and regional capital city universities and research institutions. This initiative involves researchers from the Australian National University, the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the University of Linz, the Universidad de Navarra, and the University of Ottawa, among others. The project explores whether the current default dispute resolution regime of litigation delivers commercial justice for MSMEs when they trade across borders.
