Abstract

Certains postulats de justice, qui ont conduit au positivisme juridique classique (le droit de l'Etat est le seul droit), constituent un obstacle épistémologique dans notre quête des règles et systèmes normatifs qui répondent le mieux à certains objectifs fondamentaux du droit international privé et de la primauté du droit. Des règles transnationales privées peuvent, dans certaines situations, représenter la meilleure option pour atteindre ces objectifs.

Certain postulates of justice that led to legal statism constitute an epistemological obstacle in our search for the rules and regulatory systems that best fulfil certain fundamental objectives of private international law and the rule of law more generally. Transnational private rules may, in certain situations, be the best choice for these objectives.
