Ronald A. Brand, Michael S. Coffee and Paul Herrup are the authors of The 2019 Hague Judgments Convention, published by Oxford University Press, part of its Private International Law Series.
Declared a ‘game-changer’ by the Hague Conference Secretary General, the 2019 Hague Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters has introduced international obligations of unprecedented sweep and power. Now, this authoritative treatise provides the diplomatic background and the historical context for the Convention, discussing the law on judgments recognition in the absence of the Convention’s ratification. After recounting the twenty-seven-year history of the negotiations leading to the Convention’s conclusion, it offers an article-by-article discussion of each provision. It also considers paths not taken, advancing possible solutions to address future pressures and developments.
