Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Largo Gemelli 1, 20123 Milan - Room G.127
Scadenza iscrizioni: 26/04/2023
The conference is concerned with the rules that govern the conclusion, interpretation and application of international treaties, as they apply to bilateral and multilateral treaties in the field of private international law. Reference is made to treaties relating to jurisdiction, applicable law, the recognition of judgments and international judicial assistance (private international law stricto sensu), as well as to treaties laying down uniform rules of substantive private law that are intended to govern cross-border situations.
The aim of the conference is two-fold: to encourage specialists of private international law to reassess the importance of the issues that surround the coming into existence of private international law treaties and their operation under public international law; and to discuss whether, and to what extent, the law of treaties applies in the area of private international law in a way that reflects the peculiar features of private international law (e.g., the fact that private international law rules apply to relations in the realm of private law, basically before domestic authorities, such as civil courts, notaries, civil status officers, etc.).
