Contenuti del corsoIl Corso presenterà il diritto internazionale privato in una prospettiva comparata, analizzando le fonti interne, internazionali e dell'Unione europea. Particolare attenzione verrà rivolta alle tematiche seguenti: influenza del diritto dell'UE sul diritto internazionale privato; ruolo della Corte di giustizia; interazione fra norme interne, internazionali e sovranazionali. Verranno analizzati i regolamenti Roma I e Roma II sulle obbligazioni contrattuali e non contrattuali, anche alla luce della giurisprudenza. Verranno presentate le norme di diritto internazionale uniforme in materia di contratti, in particolare in materia di vendita internazionale. Verranno anche presentate e discusse le norme su alcuni settori del diritto delle persone, quali il divorzio, le successioni e la sottrazione internazionale di minori. Nel settore del diritto processuale civile internazionale verranno esaminati, anche attraverso casi, i regolamenti comunitari. Infine attenzione particolare verrà rivolta alla tematica dell'arbitrato internazionale, con l'esame di clausole-tipo e l'analisi di casi.
