This article discusses the international and comparative aspects of the new Third Restatement of Conflict of Laws. The article makes two main arguments. First, it argues that there are legal and practical differences between international conflict-of-laws problems and domestic conflict-of-laws problems, and that the new Restatement should address both types of problems in ways that take those differences into account. Second, it argues that comparative law can and should play a role in the development of the new Restatement. The article concludes with specific recommendations for the internationalization of the Third Restatement of Conflict of Laws.
