Private international law has traditionally been a matter rather neglected
by the Finnish legislator, and this is even more so for international procedural law. Neither has judicial practice developed clear rules. For this
reason it is relatively easy to write the Finnish chapter, and I will in the
discussion follow the agenda set forth by Professor Fawcett.
NO FORUM NON CONVENIENS DOCTRINE
In spite of the lack of a doctrine of forum non conveniens similar reasoning
is to a certain extent employed by using different concepts.____________________
