This monograph series provides an important forum for authoritative scholarly works in the field of private international law, broadly defined. It represents a showcase for original research that is theoretically rigorous and meets the highest academic standards – setting the benchmark for scholarship in private international law.
Whether considering the most pressing issues in the field or offering a fresh take on well-worn ground, books in the series engage with the full range of substantive and procedural issues. Coverage includes fundamental questions of jurisdiction, choice of law proper and recognition and enforcement of judgments, as well as private international law matters regarding procedural matters such as injunctions, remedies or award of damages.
The outlook of the series is international, and provides a forum for analysis of the major treaties and conventions, both European and international. In addition to the traditional topics of contracts and torts, the series welcomes analysis of private international law on other topics such as corporations, family law and succession, and indeed on the application of private international law in various sectors.
Sometimes critical, often challenging, the primary mission of the series is the development of original thinking in private international law. It fosters the best theoretical and empirical work from both renowned authors and the next generation of scholars.
