Just released: Issue 38/1 2020 of the Netherlands Journal of Private International Law, with a special focus on the new HCCH Judgments Convention

The issue 38/1 2020 of the Netherlands Journal of Private International Law (NIPR – Nederlands Internationaal Privaatrecht) has just been published. This issue of the NIPR is available here. It includes an Editorial and the following three articles (with abstracts) devoted to the new Hague Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters, concluded on 2 July 2019 (not yet in force see here):

  1. Towards a global Hague Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters, by Hans van Loon

“This article describes the background and context of the ‘Hague Judgments Project’. Apart from earlier attempts, three stages may be distinguished in the history of this project: a first stage, dominated by the dynamics of the early European integration process, with the result that the 1965 and 1971 Hague Conventions on choice of court and recognition and enforcement of judgments, although providing inspiration for the 1968 Brussels Convention, remained unsuccessful; a second stage, very much determined by the transatlantic dimension, with differing strategic objectives of the EU and the USA notably regarding judicial jurisdiction, resulting in the lack of success of the ‘mixed’ convention proposal; and a third stage, where negotiations took on a more global character, resulting in the 2015 Choice of Court Convention and the 2019 Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters.

German Society of International Law: Corporate social responsibility and international law

In April 2019 the German Society of International Law (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationales Recht) held its 36th biannual conference at the University of Vienna. Organised by August Reinisch (University of Vienna) in cooperation with Eva Maria Kieninger (University of Würzburg) and Anne Peters (Max Planck Institute Heidelberg), the conference  discussed the concept of „Corporate social responsibility“ from both a public and a private international law perspective. Presentations were given by Tanja Domej (University of Zurich), Oliver Dörr (University of Osnabrück), Anatol Dutta (University of Munich), Peter Hilpold (University of Innsbruck), Stefan Huber (University of Tübingen), Nico Krisch (Graduate Institut of Geneva), Giesela Rühl (University of Jena/Humboldt-University of Berlin) and Silja Vöneky (University of Freiburg).

Over the course of the next days conflictoflaws.net will present the main findings of the contributions in a series of blogposts. The full (German) contributions can be found in the conference proceedings that have just been published by C.F. Müller.
