Summary/Abstract: The author explains the distinction between international public law, on the one hand, and international private law, on the other, pointing out the diversity of the legal relations governing the latter. As opposed to international public law, whereby relations are arranged between subjects of international law, IPL regulates private legal relations with a foreign element. In this context, there are significant differences in doctrine regarding its scope (conflict of law; conflict of jurisdiction; the position of foreigners and foreign legal entities, clearing agreements and payments; international arbitration, and so on). The author gives a survey of general and special international law with a review of so-called socialist international law and current European community law. He states that nowadays, international law focusses more and more on the details of international cooperation among states and other subjects of international law and international relations, and that for each branch of national law there is a corresponding branch of international law. He also points to the distinctions between this domain and other, kindred scientific disciplines, such as: international relations, international policy, the history of diplomacy, international organisations, the foreign policy of Yugoslavia, and so on.
