Introduction

Private International Law - Research Guide International Law

Le droit international privé régit les conflits de lois entre les droits des différents droits nationaux de différents pays liés à des transactions privées. Cela signifie qu'il existe un litige ou une transaction qui implique l'un des éléments suivants: détermination de la juridiction compétente - choix du tribunal, choix du for, renvoi (transfert de procédure), choix du droit applicable et reconnaissance et exécution d'un jugement étranger. On parle aux États-Unis, au Canada, et plus récemment en Angleterre de "conflict of laws". Les droits nationaux sont les sources primaires du droit international privé. Cependant, le droit international privé est également compris dans des traités et des conventions, des modèles de lois, des guides juridiques, et d'autres instruments qui régulent les transactions. Le droit international privé concerne de nombreux sujets, tels que les contrats (internationaux), les délits (lex loci delicti), les questions familiales, la reconnaissance des jugements, l'adoption et l'enlèvement d'enfants, la propriété réelle (lex rei sitae), la propriété intellectuelle.

  • Cuniberti, G., Conflict of Laws: a Comparative Approach: Text and Cases, Cheltenham, UK: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2017.

    The Conflict of Laws, also known as private international law, is a field of the greatest importance in an increasingly globalized world. The analysis of any legal issue, in a case involving more than one country, must start with an assessment of which court could potentially hear the case and which law it would apply.
    Contrary to other manuals or casebooks, which focus on the law of one jurisdiction, this casebook offers a comparative treatment of the field. On each issue, materials from several jurisdictions are discussed and compared. The approach centers on comprehending the common principles of the field, but also highlights the fundamental differences.
    This casebook systematically presents and compares the laws of four jurisdictions: the United States, the European Union, France and England (where left untouched by EU harmonization). It offers additional insight into rules applicable in China and Japan and also discusses remarkable solutions adopted in a wide range of jurisdictions such as Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and Tunisia. All materials from non-English speaking jurisdictions have been translated into English.

  • Fawcett, J.J., Shúilleabháin. M.N., Shah, S., Human Rights and Private International Law, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2016.

    A comprehensive analysis of the relationship between human rights and private international law. Contains a focussed discussion of individual rights through human rights jurisprudence and the imapct of this on aspects of private international law. The book treats  numerous English private international law cases discussing human rights concerns arising in the commercial law context, alongside high profile cases dealing with torture and same sex marriage.The right to a fair trial is central to the intersection between human rights and private international law, and is considered in depth along with the right to freedom of expression; the right to respect for private and family life; the right to marry; the right to property; and the prohibition of discrimination on the ground of religion, sex, or nationality. Focussing on, though not confined to, the human rights set out in the ECHR, the work also examines the rights laid down under the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and other international human rights instruments.

    Quel Avenir Pour La Théorie Générale Des Conflits De Lois?: Droit Européen, Droit Conventionnel, Droit Commun

    La période contemporaine se caractérise en droit international privé par une très importante diversification des sources. Cette diversification est particulièrement présente dans le domaine des conflits de lois. De nombreuses règles de conflit nouvelles ont été adoptées : certaines sont issues de règlements européens ou de conventions internationales ; d’autres ont été créées à l’initiative des législateurs nationaux. À la diversité des sources s’ajoute une diversité des matières concernées : obligations contractuelles et non contractuelles, divorce et séparation de corps, successions, obligations alimentaires, adoption, partenariats enregistrés, mariage, etc. On constate ainsi une accumulation de textes spéciaux. Ce double mouvement – diversification des sources et multiplication des textes spéciaux – invite à s’interroger sur l’avenir de la théorie générale des conflits de lois. Pareille théorie repose sur l’étude de mécanismes transversaux afférents à la mise en œuvre des règles de conflit : qualification, renvoi, lois de police, exception d’ordre public, fraude à la loi, règles relatives à l’office du juge. La situation est telle que l’on s’interroge sur l’opportunité de l’adoption d’un règlement européen qui lui serait exclusivement dédié. Il est donc fondamental de réfléchir à l’avenir de ladite théorie et de proposer des solutions cohérentes assurant un fonctionnement satisfaisant des règles de conflit nationales et européennes.

  • Van Calster, G., European Private International Law, Oxford, Hart Publishing, 2016.

    Van Calster, G., European Private International Law, Oxford, Hart Publishing, 2016.

    As one of the most definitive texts on the market, European Private International Law provides an essential guide for both students and practitioners to the complex field of international litigation within the EU. The private international law of the Member States is increasingly regulated by European law, making private international law ever less 'national' and ever more EU based. Consequentially EU law in this area has penetrated national law to a very high degree, making it an essential area of study and an area of increasing importance to practising lawyers. This book provides a thorough overview of core European private international law, including the Brussels I, Rome I and Rome II Regulations (jurisdiction, applicable law for contracts and tort), while additional chapters deal with the recently adopted Succession Regulation, private international law and insolvency, freedom of establishment, and the impact of PIL on corporate social responsibility.

  • Basedow, J., The Law of Open Societies: Private Ordering and Public Regulation in the Conflict of Laws, Leiden, Brill Nijhoff, 2015.

    Basedow, J., The Law of Open Societies: Private Ordering and Public Regulation in the Conflict of Laws, Leiden, Brill Nijhoff, 2015.

    This book endeavours to interpret the development of private international law in light of social change. Since the end of World War II the socio-economic reality of international relations has been characterised by a progressive move from closed to open societies. The dominant feature of our time is the opening of borders for individuals, goods, services, capital and data. It is reflected in the growing importance of ex ante planning – as compared with ex post adjudication – of cross-border relations between individuals and companies. What has ensued is a shift in the forces that shape international relations from states to private actors. The book focuses on various forms of private ordering for economic and societal relations, and its increasing significance, while also analysing the role of the remaining regulatory powers of the states involved. These changes stand out more distinctly by virtue of the comparative treatment of the law and the long-term perspective employed by the author. The text is a revised and updated version of the lectures given by the author during the 2012 summer courses of the Hague Academy of International Law.

  • Briggs, A., Private International Law in English Courts, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    Briggs, A., Private International Law in English Courts, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    This book offers a restatement of European and English Private International Law as it applies in the English courts. The author has set out to create a contemporary approach to private international law which is distinguished from the traditional approach of describing private international law through its common law foundations. The author places European Regulations, and related statutory material, at the front and centre of the book, reorganising private international law according to the principles that the law is increasingly European and decreasingly insular. As such the work constitutes an approach to the area which is essential for litigators dealing with questions of private international law influenced by forty years of European legislation. The in-depth discussion will also be valuable to academics specialising in private international law. Written by an academic who is also a practising barrister, this book seeks to highlight the techniques and principles which provide the hidden infrastructure and support mechanisms for the private international law rules of European law, as well as the remaining standing of the common law rules of private international law.

    Borchers, P.J. (ed.), Jurisdiction and Private International Law, Cheltenham, Edward Elgar Publishers, 2014.

    In an increasingly globalized and digitized world, transactions, communications and data flow freely across national borders. When lawsuits arise as a result of those trans-border events, the question of which court or courts have jurisdiction and can provide the appropriate forum becomes critical. This two-volume collection provides a survey of personal jurisdiction across both time and legal systems. It includes articles ranging from the early 20th century to present day and to the problems created by jurisdiction in cyberspace. It also examines the jurisdictional premises of major common law countries and those in the civilian tradition. With an original introduction by the editor, these comprehensive volumes will appeal to scholars and practitioners alike.

  • Symeonides, S.C., Codifying Choice of Law around the World: An International Comparative Analysis, New York, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    Symeonides, S.C., Codifying Choice of Law around the World: An International Comparative Analysis, New York, Oxford University Press, 2014.

    This book chronicles, documents, and celebrates an extraordinary development in the history of Private International Law (PIL) or Conflict of Laws---a massive codification movement around the globe in the last 50 years (1962–2012). During this period, we have witnessed the adoption of more PIL codifications, Regulations, international conventions, protocols, and similar instruments (nearly 200) than in all previous years since the inception of PIL. The book provides a horizontal comparison and discussion of these codifications and conventions. After comparing the way they resolve tort and contract conflicts, the discussion compares the answers of these codifications to some of the fundamental philosophical and methodological dilemmas of PIL. In the process, the book re-examines certain widely held assumptions about choice of law and the art and science of codification in general.

  • A Commitment to Private International Law: Essays in Honour of Hans van Loon, Cambridge, Intersentia, 2013.

    A Commitment to Private International Law: Essays in Honour of Hans van Loon, Cambridge, Intersentia, 2013.

    Hans van Loon has been at the forefront of private international law for well over a quarter of a century. Since joining the Hague Conference on Private International Law in 1978, he has presided over remarkable growth of the Organisation and significant changes to how it operates. He has been involved in the development of nine Hague Conventions, two of which are fast approaching 100 Contracting States, as well as the revision of the Statute of the Hague Conference. In his time as Secretary General, he has seen the Organisation's membership grow from 44 to 72 Members (with more than 60 non-Member States now party to at least one Hague Convention), which has turned the Hague Conference into a veritable world organisation. The continued relevance of the Hague Conference in the 21st century owes much to the commitment of Hans van Loon to private international law and his awareness of its role in a broader social context. This Liber Amicorum is a collection of contributions from friends and colleagues who have shared the negotiating table with Hans van Loon at various diplomatic sessions, collaborated with him on seminars and academic pursuits around the globe, and worked alongside him at the Permanent Bureau.

  • Shell and Ogoni People : (s)oil pollution in the Niger Delta

    On January 30, 2013, the court (Rechtbank) in the Hague, The Netherlands, ruled that Royal Dutch Shell can be held partially responsible for pollution in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region and ordered it to pay damages to one farmer. The Dutch court dismissed four out of five allegations of the Ogoni people against the oil company. Although Shell blames the oil pollution to sabotage, activists say the case could set a precedent for damage claims related to the foreign activities of multinational companies.
