"Reforming New Zealand’s Conflicts Process: The Case for Internationalisation"

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.
