We are pleased to present the newest Commentaries on Private International Law (Vol. 6, Issue 1), the newsletter of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) Private International Law Interest Group (PILIG). The primary purpose of our newsletter is to communicate global news on PIL. Accordingly, the newsletter attempts to transmit information on new developments on PIL rather than provide substantive analysis, in a non-exclusive manner, with a view of providing specific and concise information that our readers can use in their daily work. These updates on developments on PIL may include information on new laws, rules and regulations; new judicial and arbitral decisions; new treaties and conventions; new scholarly work; new conferences; proposed new pieces of legislation; and the like.
This issue has two sections. Section one contains Highlights on the application of the CISG in Latin American countries, and PIL and the protection of children. Section two reports on the recent developments on PIL in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania, and South America.
