Chapter Summary

The Hague Conference on Private International Law is the world organisation for cross-border co-operation in civil and commercial matters. It has 75 Members located on every continent.1 Furthermore, 142 States are Parties to one or more Hague Conventions.2 In essence, the purpose of the Organisation is to build bridges between various legal systems, while respecting and retaining their diversity. The framework of legal norms and almost-widely-accepted legal principles which have developed from these efforts are now often relied upon as key tools to reinforce legal security and minimise uncertainty when disputes or other issues arise in States which are also Party to the relevant Hague Conventions. The reliability and stability of such systems is indeed essential in an age of globalisation; indeed, supranational rules and guidelines governing the applicable law, administrative co-operation between States, and international civil procedure are needed more than ever as family, individual and business relationships extend beyond national borders grow in number and complexity.3
