Course description
  PRIVATE INTERNATIONAL LAW IN THE MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY

Competencies and objectives

Provisional information. Pending approval.

 

Course context for academic year 2020-21

Private international law is one of the legal subjects that exist in the Degree in International Relations. In particular, this is the branch of the Spanish legal system that is in charge of regulating international private relations.

The European integration process, the developments in communication and information technologies, the increase of transnational human movements, the so-called economic globalization and the elimination of obstacles to international trade have given rise to societies in which these international private relationships are multicultural.

Students studying the degree in international relations must be aware of this reality, know the tools that private international law establishes to guarantee an adequate regulation of these relations, favor the integration of immigrants in western societies, facilitate international trade relations in the fourth industrial revolution, and reflect on the principles that should inspire such regulation.
