On the blog section of the Dutch journal Nederlands Juristenblad, a blog of Veerle Van Den Eeckhout on the importance of Private International Law has been published, see here.
The blog is entitled “The impact and potential of a curious and unique discipline. About PIL, Shell Nigeria, European and global competition and social justice.” It is written in Dutch; here is the English version.
The blog refers, inter alia, to the Shell-Nigeria case and to some PIL-aspects of international labour law. It was foreseen that on 14 July 2015 the Hague Court of Appeal would pass judgement in the Shell-Nigeria case, but in the meantime the judgement has been postponed until a later date.
On SSRN, an English verson of Van Den Eeckhout’s paper “The Right Way to Go in International Lbour law – and Beyond” has been made available meanwhile. This paper discusses some PIL-aspects of international labour law.
