This concluding chapter provides some overall conclusions on the impact of human rights law on private international law, and the impact of private international law on human rights law. The right to respect for private and family life has had the greatest effect on particular areas of private international law, specifically on the rules relating to international child abduction as well as parental status. Meanwhile, the right to private life has had a major influence on jurisdiction in international defamation cases. On the other hand, there is little evidence of any impact of private international law on human rights law. Indeed, the rules, principles, and values of private international law have not been absorbed into human rights law.
