Abstract

In all three areas of Private international law (jurisdiction; applicable law or ‘conflict of laws’; and recognition and enforcement), there has been increasing international convergence or even harmonisation, with the European Union (‘EU’) example being the most advanced. This contribution reflects upon the unparalleled drive of the European Commission (‘EC’) to harmonise private international law in the EU, in particular in areas of commercial law . It aims to highlight the main direction in the development of European private international law, using recent developments in two specific instances: the proposed European Contract Law for Sales, and the Insolvency Regulation.

Keywords: Insolvency Regulation, EU, Conflict of Laws
