Main Article Content

Carlos A. Gabuardi


This essay surveys the existing international judicial cooperation institutions, both in Europe and Ibero-America. Then, it addresses the current situation in the North American region where almost nothing has been taking place.

In the author´s opinion international judicial cooperation in the North-American region should address at least in three simultaneous areas: a) a priority agenda; b) an implementation agenda; and c) a sustainable agenda, where the significant Canadian contribution in the field of "Civil Law Common Law bijuralism," shows significant lessons to be learned.
