Dr. TSENG Hui-Yi  曾蕙逸

 

Education Background
Doctor of Juridical Science, University of Wisconsin, 2010

L.L.M., New York University School of Law, 2003

L.L.M., University of Cambridge, 2002

L.L.B., National Chengchi University, 2001

 

Research Interests

Chinese Anti-Dumping Regulations and WTO Trade Remedy Law

WTO Dispute Settlement Procedure

International Commercial Arbitration and Chinese Commercial Arbitration

Trade & Environmental Conflict in WTO Systems

Public International Law

 
 

 

Dr. Hui-Yi Katherine Tseng is a Research Associate in East Asian Institute.

 

After her master degree in Cambridge and NYU, she attended the WTO negotiation team for Taiwan Government. She thus delved into WTO dispute settlement scenarios, with a special focus on anti-dumping measures, and food safety issues in Sanitary and Phyto-Sanitary scenario. International negotiation experiences opened her views and further strengthened the idea to explore fundamental questions like conflicts between trade and environmental interests in her doctoral studies. 

 

After obtaining her doctorate degree with UW-Wisconsin, Madison, she went to Beijing China and spent some time with The Beijing Arbitration Committee (2010, Spring), studying arbitration issues in current China. She then joined the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (2010, Autumn), and had a good chance looking at how states and private sectors worked to resolve their disputes. Subsequently, she joined the East Asian Institute around the end of 2010. These experiences greatly enrich her perceptions toward conflict management and dispute resolutions in international community, enabling her to see these issues from different angles rather than mere legal ones.   

 

Her research interests expand from international trade dispute resolutions in World Trade Organization to maritime conflict management and disputes resolution in East Asian areas. Currently, she is working on the research concerning maritime territorial issues involving China, ASEAN countries, and Taiwan. Eyeing the thriving events that rapidly change the political landscapes in the world map, Dr. Tseng hopes that her research and the coming book can help shed lights on certain new directions that have and will revolutionalize legal orders established by international law.
