The Encyclopedia consists of four volumes. Volumes 1 and 2 contain 247 alphabetically sorted entries. They analyse a wide range of topics of private international law from a comparative perspective taking into account recent developments on the national, European and international level. In choosing the topics we focused on the traditional areas of private international law, ie jurisdiction, applicable law, recognition and enforcement of foreign decisions as well as cross-border legal cooperation in private matters. But we have also endeavoured to look beyond the traditional boundaries of the discipline into neighbouring areas such as comparative law and uniform law, human rights, EU law and public international law as well as law and economics. Volume 3 contains 80 national reports. They describe the private international law regimes of selected countries and analyse global and regional trends. To complete the picture, the national reports are accompanied in Volume 4 by a collection of legal instruments of private international law either in the original English language of promulgation, if any, or in English translation (see for a more detailed account the Explanatory Note to Volume 4). Entries, national reports and translations reflect the state of law in early 2016 unless indicated otherwise.--Preface.
