Unlike its public international law counterpart, private international law traditionally lies on domestic rules of each jurisdiction. Recently, some trends can be seen both on the regional level and the global level to harmonise private international law rules. What exactly have these attempts achieve? This editorial article seeks to explore and outline attempts on both regional and global levels in harmonising private international law rules. It argues that, like how public international law rules were formulated, a process of harmonisation of private international law requires a consensus among global community. To reach such a consensus, extensive discourses are necessary in order to glean rules which are commonly adopted.
