Training on international private law for judges and experts

On the 8th and 9th of December 2015, the Hague Permanent Bureau organized a two-day training in Jordan. Experts from Bahrein, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia as well as Germany, Canada and the UK, including members of the Permanent Bureau of the HCCH discussed the relevance of a number of Hague conventions to the MENA states. ISS Germany was invited and successfully presented ISS cases of transnational cooperation. One of the highlights was the Moroccan Central Authority’s experience in the implementations of 1980 and 1996 Hague Conventions.

Shortly after, the Albanian Ministry of Justice co-organized with ISS Germany a training for family judges on family conflict focused on cross border situations. The training concept was developed by the German Branch.
