Campbell McLachlan, 1984
This article calls for the adoption of an internationalist approach in developing the discipline of private international law in New Zealand. With reference to trans-national custody disputes and international child abduction, the author illustrates the need for internationally agreed solutions in order to secure conflicts justice for individuals caught up in trans-national family disputes. New Zealand should participate in the work of Hague Conference on Private International Law and contribute to the development of uniform private international law rules.
