The Asian Business and Rule of Law Initiative (ABRL) was established by the School of Law at Singapore Management University and Access to Justice Asia. It was set up in 2011 to serve as a focal point for coordinating cutting-edge socio-legal research on the rule of law at SMU School of Law. To this end, ABRL conducts seminars, carries out and supervises innovative scholarly research, and leads direct impact transitional justice initiatives in post-conflict Asian countries. ABRL has had the privilege of working with leading law schools, including Yale Law School and Berkeley Law School. Since its inception, ABRL has represented genocide survivors in war crimes trials in Cambodia; co-authored a multi-site rule of law study on ASEAN; advised the United Nations on transnational corporate responsibility; carried out policy-relevant research in relation to post-conflict Sri Lanka, Timor- Leste and Bangladesh; and co-hosted two summer courses with established international universities. ABRL hopes to help nurture a new generation of Asian Scholars, lawyers and practitioners who are equipped to refine and develop novel aspects of international law practice and policy in Asia.
