Even before the outbreak of the pandemic, the signs seemed to point to deglobalization. With the spread of Covid-19, the end of globalization is proclaimed in many places. We do not believe that the world can do without an international division of labor in the future. On the contrary, far-reaching international cooperation at all levels, but especially in economic matters, will become increasingly important for solving global challenges.
A globally networked economy requires specialists who accompany and manage international contracts and transactions. Every cooperation between two companies from different countries, every cross-border business, raises diverse and difficult questions of Private International Law, the applicability of treaties under international law, the jurisdiction of courts etc. The following should be mentioned in particular:
- conflict of laws (PIL) of contractual and non-contractual obligations
- international civil procedure and arbitration law
- internationally harmonized commercial law, particularly sales law, commercial agency law and transportation law,
- internationally harmonized corporate law
- European state aid and competition law
- main features of the regulations on the fight against corruption, fraud, and money laundering in international legal transactions
- main features in the realm of international tax law
- main features of comparative law
