The Hague Conference and the Main Issues of Private International Law for the Eighties

Droz, George A.L., Dyer, Adair | January 1, 1981

The Hague Conference on Private International Law has attempted, since its revitalization in the 1950, to unify the rules of private international law. The efforts of the Conference have in the past centered around the fields of civil procedure, conflict of laws, the international sale of goods, products liability and international family law. Messrs. Droz and Dyer review the history of the achievements of the Conference in these fields and reflect on the problems and opportunities the Conference will encounter in the 1980″s.
