After the first successful conference in Aarhus in 2022, the next conference of the European Association of Private International Law (EAPIL) will be held from 6 to 8 June 2024 at the University of Wrocław, Poland. The local host will be Agnieszka Frąckowiak-Adamska.
The Wrocław conference will focus on Private International Law and Global Crises. The general question discussed is whether private international law can respond to crises, and if so, how. Four thematic blocks are planned, concerned respectively with war and armed conflict, the rule of law, climate change and global supply chains.
In addition, reports from the Court of Justice of the European Union, the European Court of Human Rights and the European Commission will provide insights into current challenges in the creation and application of EU PIL.
