Universal, regional, national – ways of development of private international law in 21st century.

(Department of International and European Law)

At the turn of 21st century the private international law gained new impulses which ware associated with the communitarization at European level. As a result of the fact that legal regulation of cross-border disputes falls within the first pillar of the EU, international conventions were being replaced by regulations. Moreover, much of the so-called specific part of the private international law is gradually regulated by the EU legislation and issues related to universal unification efforts arise. The EU's competences play an important role as well as its ties with third countries including possibly and highly likely the United Kingdom. At the same time the fragmentary unification of private international law reaches its limits, for example, in the fragmentation of the general part of private international law - which may cause differences in the unification of special areas of private international law - or in relation to the procedural aspects of international private law. Papers in this section may, therefore, evaluate the relation between the norms of European private international law and international conventions. Next, papers in this section may assess the relation between the European private international law and national laws which constitute a residual regulation and may set certain parameters arising out of procedural law. In addition, papers may also aim at current values of private international law – the balance between the flexibility of solutions and the legal certainty in the form of predictability of decision-making process or protection of the values of a particular legal order or the society as such. Furthermore, it may be challenging to describe suitable ways of advanced application of universal norms. What is more, it could be interesting to analyse the attitudes to adaptation of both conflict and procedural solutions. Consequently, papers may assess any possible areas of cross-border relationships and conflict norms arising thereof. Also, papers may evaluate procedural norms, i.e. the question of international jurisdiction as well as the area of recognition and enforcement of foreign court decisions including the obligation of recognition and enforcement of court decisions published within the EU in relation to the principles of state sovereignty and territoriality of law.
