This volume contains the General Course on Private International Law on Respect for foreign law as a Principle of Private International Law, given by Professor A.V.M. Struycken, Professor emeritus at the University of Nijmegen.The title — Co-ordination and Co-operation in Respectful Disagreement —reflects the leading thought. Each State has its own legal truth, closely related to its culture. In private international law one has to accept this as a datum. This book re-explores the classical approach, in the awareness of international private relations being established under the roof of large bodies of imperative rules. It pays attention to the impact of the EC on private international law and to uniform substantive law. It elaborates on subject matter jurisdiction, not only of courts but of notaries and other office holders.
