Private international law (PIL) scholarship in recent years has increasingly observed and conceptualized a governance role and regulatory function of PIL. My PhD project engages with this perspective and asks how this dimension of PIL plays out against the backdrop of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It responds to PIL' s need for internal normative justifications and specific contexts for developing its governance role and regulatory function and conceptualizes how PIL can respond to the SDGs' call for more effective legal tools to discipline transnational private behaviors.
