This chapter explains how Brussels IIb Regulation formed part of a complex network of instruments applicable in the field of private international law of the family. The Brussels IIb Regulation follows the pattern adopted in the other EU regulations by overriding or taking precedence over international conventions insofar concluded among the Member States. The chapter elaborates on the correlation of EU regulations with the 1980 Hague Abduction Convention and the 1996 Hague Child Protection Convention. According to Article 98, agreements and conventions referred to in Articles 94 to 97 shall continue to have effect concerning matters not governed by this Regulation. The chapter also covers treaties with the Holy See and other existing bilateral conventions with third countries.
