Call For Papers

Prof. Julien Chaisse, Prof. Manjiao Chi, Dr. Jędrzej Górski, Dr. Manzoor Ahmad, and Ms. Teresa Cheng will be editing a Special Issue of Transnational Dispute Management (TDM, ISSN 1875-4120, www.transnational-dispute-management.com) on the legal aspects of the One Belt One Road initiative (‘OBOR’).

The One Belt One Road initiative has been the Chinese development strategy aiming at the economic integration of Eurasia and the growth of China’s Western Provinces, largely through infrastructural and transportation projects. OBOR’s core idea has been to revive ancient land-trade routes in the framework of the Silk Road Economic Belt project (‘SREB’) supported by the Twenty-first Century Maritime Silk Road (‘21MSR’) as proposed by Xi Jinping in Autumn 2013 first in Kazakhstan about the SREB, and subsequently in Indonesia with regard to the 21MSR. In addition, the OBOR/SREB also includes regional platforms of co-operation, particularly the ‘16+1 Group’ gathering China and Central and Eastern European countries which was established in April 2012 in Warsaw, that is over a year ahead of the announcement of the OBOR.

The OBOR has been pictured as a mostly geopolitical project with potentially far-reaching economic ramifications. Thus, the OBOR has so far attracted massive attention from commentators and scholars focusing on politics, international relations and economics. However, for the time being, the OBOR is still at the very initial phase of realisation and its success essentially depends on the formation of efficient institutional and regulatory environment along OBOR's trade routes.

The co-editors invite you to explore the legal dimensions of the controversy surrounding the OBOR by contributing to this special edition with unpublished or previously published articles, conference papers, research papers and case studies addressing the OBOR and corresponding issues.

For example, the following topics raise interesting points for discussion:

• Institutional Framework of the OBOR.

• Expansion of public and private investment in Eurasia.

• Legal Challenges to trade along the OBOR routes.

• Case Studies.
