Targeted toward professionals with sound knowledge in this area, this course, which relies on contributions by experienced litigators, addresses specialised problems arising in the practice of international disputes. This year's edition of the course will be devoted to problems related to the recognition and enforcement of civil judgments and interim measures, both in Switzerland and in selected foreign countries (Swiss PIL Act, Brussels Ia Regulation and Lugano Convention, English recognition system after Brexit). We will focus in particular on some specific grounds for refusal (indirect jurisdiction, defective service of process, substantial and procedural public policy), other obstacles to enforcement (state immunity, prescription), and the enforcement procedures.
