This final chapter looks back at the arguments presented in this book and envisages possible directions of work to come. Will the initial effort to use skeptical, critical, or alternative approaches to the field of private international law have a future? Where does this future lie? Clearly, this heterodox project calls for some consolidation. An alternative would be to maintain a largely theoretical stance, if only through the importation within the largely conservative private international legal academy, of viewpoints developed outside the mainstream in other fields. There remains two functions for the conflict of laws to fulfill. The first is to spell out its legal regime. The second involves the tool-kit of private international law.
