Private international law is essentially the law governing relations between individuals that transcend borders.
The progress of civilization has gone hand in hand with the development of exchanges between different organized societies.
Nowadays, no population constituted as a State can live confined to its territory and in complete autarky.
Globalization has led to an increase in family matters that involve a foreign aspect.
An international private life similar to that which takes place within the different internal orders appears : people move around, create ties abroad, live in several countries and one day pass on their possessions.
These relationships or situations are said to have “connections” with more than one state.
Therefore, when a dispute arises with one or more foreign elements, it will be necessary to establish, on the one hand, the jurisdiction that will be competent to settle the dispute and, on the other hand, the law applicable to the disputed situation.
We commonly and respectively speak of conflict of jurisdictions and conflict of laws.
