The “Judgments Project” refers to the work undertaken by the Hague Conference since 1992 on two key aspects of private international law in cross-border litigation in civil and commercial matters: the international jurisdiction of courts and the recognition and enforcement of their judgments abroad.
Initially, the Judgments Project focused on developing a broad convention, which was subsequently scaled down to focus on international cases involving choice of court agreements. This led to the conclusion of the Hague Convention of 30 June 2005 on Choice of Court Agreements (“Choice of Court Convention”). For more information on the Choice of Court Convention, see the Choice of Court Homepage.
