Yearbook of Private International Law : Volume XI (2009)
Volume XI of the Yearbook of Private International Law strikes a balance in the multifaceted expressions of the increasing importance of private international law at national and supranational levels. The vitality of private international law within the European Union is evidenced by both legislative projects and the rich case law of the European Court of Justice. While the European Commission's draft for a Regulation on succession - which probably constitutes the most detailed and ambitious attempt ever to codify private international law in this area - begins its legislative process, a new initiative on the application of foreign law is being considered by the European institutions. Both of these developments are discussed in the Doctrine section of the Yearbook. Volume XI also examines interesting developments taking place on other continents. For example, it includes a special section focusing on Chinese private international law and reports on the renewed interest in conflict of laws in the US doctrine.
