The Hague Convention on Private International Law provides us with legal force or guidance in the event of a conflict or disagreement between the laws of two or more states. Whether or not a member state of the Hague Convention signs or is a party to a convention depends upon the viewpoint of the state itself concerning the subject matter. For example France has signed but is not a party to the convention regarding trusts since it does not recognise the trust. Cyprus too has signed but is not a party to the convention perhaps because the convention in some way was not in keeping with some aspect of national interest.
The conventions that form part of Cyprus law can be found at:
