Abstract

This article was published in connection with UNIDROIT's 75th anniversary conference on worldwide harmonization of private law and regional economic integration. It begins by addressing the commercial need for harmonization in the area of secured transactions, discussing both traditional conflicts analysis in that field and particular obstacles to reform. It then outlines the specific reform initiatives that have been implemented to date, grouping them into sectoral instruments and regional instruments. It concludes by speculating on the future of harmonization efforts in security law.

Keywords: secured transactions, commercial law, harmonization, conflicts
