Chapter 9: Hungary
Restricted access

The present chapter provides an overview on how public policy appears in the new Hungarian Act on private international law, what kind changes it went through during the last decades and how it is interpreted by the national courts. Following the presentation of the current statutory rules on public policy and overriding mandatory requirements, the paper analyses the existing case law of public authorities and national courts for each typical area of private international law where public policy could in principle be relied upon in order to disapply certain provisions of foreign law. Although the chapter focuses on the conflict of laws aspects, some cases concerning the recognition and enforcement of decisions are also presented if they add to the understanding of the interpretation of the concept.
