About this book

The book seeks to address the intersection of food organics and the emergence of a new contractualism between producers, distributors and consumers, and between nation states. Additionally, it seeks to cater to the needs of a discerning public concerned about how its own country aims to meet their demands for organic food quality and safety, as well as how they will benefit from integration in the standard-setting processes increasingly occurring regionally and internationally. This edited volume brings together expert scholars and practitioners and draws on their respective insights and experiences in the field of organics, food and health safety. The book is organized in three parts. Part I outlines certain international perspectives; Part II reflects upon relevant histories and influences and finally, Part III examines the organic food regulatory regime of various jurisdictions in the Asia Pacific.

About the authors

Goh, Bee Chen A former Malaysian Rhodes Scholar, Professor Bee Chen Goh is Professor of Law, and Director of the Centre for Peace and Social Justice, School of Law and Justice, Southern Cross University, Australia. She is a Director and Fellow of the Australian Academy of Law, Fellow of Cambridge Commonwealth Society, and Fellow of the Society for Advanced Legal Studies in London.  Bee Chen’s current collaborative research project deals with organic food safety in China. Her scholarly interests include Mediation and ADR, especially on Cross-Cultural (Sino-Western) Dispute Resolution, and International Law of Peace. Her publications include Negotiating with the Chinese (Dartmouth/Routledge, 1996), Law Without Lawyers, Justice Without Courts: On Traditional Chinese Mediation (Ashgate/Routledge, 2002), and Goh, Offord and Garbutt (eds) Activating Human Rights and Peace: Theories, Practices and Contexts (Ashgate/Routledge, 2012).
Price, Rohan A lecturer in the Southern Cross University School of Law and Justice, Dr Rohan Price has established a reputation as a foremost historian of the role of nationalism in the British/Chinese colonial encounter. Rohan was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of New England (Australia) for his thesis on the use of property law to encourage civic loyalty to colonial Hong Kong between the world wars. His books including Reading Colonies: Property and Control of the British Far East and Resistance in Colonial and Communist China (1950-1963) are based on extensive archival and digital repository research. His books have been described in reviews as “passionate”, containing “argumentative strength and forthright originality” and “enormous attention to historic, theoretical and political detail”. Rohan has enjoyed lengthy stints as a visiting profssor in three Chinese universities over the last decade, teaching in fields including common law history, maritime law and the law of trusts. His interest on Chinese food safety issues was prompted by a friend in Hong Kong who, in 2008, casually mentioned he should not to buy the same brand of noodles every time he went to the supermarket.
