As globalization continues to expand its reach and scope, and as the nations of the international community become increasingly interdependent and interconnected, International Law, and its applications throughout the region, has become crucial to ensuring that this system operates as justly as possible. The OAS plays an important role in addressing issues related to international law.
Through its Secretariat for Legal Affairs, the Organization supports activities geared toward the standardization and harmonization of laws on public and private international law in the member states, including the legal aspects of economic integration in the regional context.
