Out now: Research Methods in Private International Law

The book Research Methods in International Private Law: A Handbook on Regulation, Research and Teaching has been published (Elgar, 2024). It is edited by Xandra Kramer and Laura Carballo Piñeiro. It includes 18 chapters, two of which are authored by other members of the Vici team, Carlota Ucín and Adriani Dori. Carlota’s chapter focuses on conflict of methods in private international law from a legal theory perspective and Adriani’s chapter on the methodological influence of European private international law on domestic legal systems. The book is part of the Handbook in the Research Methods of Law Series of Edward Elgar Publishing. It seeks to provide insights into the different methodological approaches to private international law from a regulatory approach and from a research and educational perspective. The book is divided in three parts focusing on (1) the classification of private international law as private law and its interaction with international public law and regulation; (2) inter- and multi-disciplinary approaches and research methods; and (3) how private international law helps to frame and address the critical debates of our time as well as the role of legal scholarship and education in shaping the future of private international law. The book will be launched and introduced in two webinars in September 2024.
