Private International Law and Sustainable Development

Private International Law and Sustainable Development

Given the renewed commitment to the attainment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its SDGs in the Americas as expressed by Member States at the recent OAS General Assembly [Renewed Commitment to Sustainable Development in the Americas Post COVID-19, AG/DOC. 104, November 12, 2021], the Department of International Law (DIL) is pleased to advise readers of a recent publication entitled, “The Private Side of Transforming our World: UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and the Role of Private International Law”.

As described therein, “most development occurs not only through public action but also through private action…governed predominantly by private law – contracts, property, company law - … and the transnational aspect of these actions is governed by private international law. The book demonstrates an important, constructive role for private international law as an indispensable part of the global legal architecture needed to turn the SDGs into reality.” The publication includes an introduction, comprising an overview and general findings of the project, and a chapter on each one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. DIL is pleased to have had the opportunity to contribute towards one such chapter on SDG #2 on Zero Hunger.

The project will be discussed at a virtual book launch organized by the Private International Law Interest Group of the American Society of International Law on Thursday, December 9th at 12 noon. Registration is available here.
