|Hague Conference on Private International Law|
All the participants of the jubilee 10th PIL Conference have evaluated the Conference proceedings as highly successful and rewarding in terms of quality contents, overall organization, good attendance and remarkable composition of participants.
The success of the Conference has been significantly enhanced by the organizer's decision to use a less usual conference format. Namely, the traditional conference model based on paper presentation has been replaced by a more interactive discussion format. Thus, the topics were introduced by carefully selected rapporteurs who provided the introductory report on the given topic, which was further discussed and elaborated in the course of a 2,5-hour debate (per session). Some topics inspired constructive polemic discussions, conducted with a lot of spirit and tolerance. Such a concept has given rise to a number of very significant PIL questions and concurrently resulted in a number of interesting proposals and solutions.
The participation of young PIL assistants from almost all law faculties of ex-Yugoslavia has given this Conference an added quality. The Conference was also attended for the first time by the official representatives of the Ministry of Justice, which is the central authority for some Hague conventions.
This Conference has been organized by prof. dr Mirko Živković and teaching assistant Sanja Marjanović.
