Aktuelle Forschung im Internationalen Privatrecht

About the speaker:
Symeon C. Symeonides has taught private international law for 44 years, primarily in the United States but also in Europe and elsewhere. He has published several books and articles on this subject and has drafted choice-of-law codifications for Louisiana and Oregon.

About the topic:
Conflicts of laws arising from infringement of personality rights have always been difficult, if only because they implicate conflicting societal values, such as freedom of speech and access to information, on the one hand, and protection of reputation and privacy, on the other hand. The ubiquity of the internet has dramatically increased the frequency and intensity of these conflicts. The speaker will present a proposed international model law that aspires to facilitate the resolution of these conflicts in a practical, efficient, and balanced way.
