The article discusses the role of judges in the development of private international law (PIL). It highlights the changing role of judges in the context of contemporary globalization, and argues that as a result of the expansion of their international duties, judges, in a way that is analogous to the working cycle of the Hague Conference on Private International Law, also have a role in identifying legal issues that must be addressed by PIL, developing tools to address those issues, ensuring the implementation and operation of these tools, and assessing their effectiveness. The article also highlights the contribution of judges to the development of Hague Conventions, and describes the very important role of Latin American judges in the development of special devices to promote the implementation, operation and assessment of the 1980 Hague Child Abduction Convention in Latin America.
