The Department of Private International Law of the University of Szeged and the Federal Markets “Momentum” Research Group (established by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the University of Szeged) are convening a conference on “Global challenges, European unification and national diversity in private international law”. The conference is organized by Professor Csongor István Nagy, and supported by the Ministry of Justice of Hungary.
The focus will be on the global challenges emerging for EU private international law, including their causes and consequences. Besides the European perspective, the national perspective is a central theme of the conference due to recent re-codifications and major reforms of domestic private international law in Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania (re-codification in Croatia is pending). The national experiences regarding the symbiosis of the EU and the national regimes will be discussed. The speakers will explore the evolving interaction between EU conflict of laws and national systems featured by various forms of cross-fertilization.
The event will take place on 17 November 2017 at the University of Szeged, Rector’s Office, ground floor room 5, 6720 Szeged, Dugonics square 13.
