This introductory chapter provides an overview of the central themes of the book as well as its scope and structure. This book examines the impact of human rights law on private international law and vice versa, with a focus on private international law cases and instruments. Given that it remains unclear whether private international law is compatible with human rights law, the starting point of the analysis is that no human rights instrument has provisions on private international law. Moreover, most international human rights bodies, such as the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), are not empowered to interpret private international law rules any more than any other substantive rules of law.
