The International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT) is an independent intergovernmental Organization with its seat in Rome. Its purpose is to study needs and methods for modernizing, harmonizing and coordinating private and in particular commercial law as between States and groups of States and to formulate uniform law instruments, principles and rules to achieve those objectives. Iran has been a member of this Institute since 1951. Thus far, and despite more than half a century membership, we have not been able to benefit from opportunities and benefits of the Institute. The translation of the book on the principles of International trade agreements by Shahre Danesh is a welcoming sign for a better understanding of the activities of the Institute. It is earnestly hoped that, the visit of the UNIDROIT Secretary General to the Islamic Republic of Iran, could even more, highlight the importance of the work of the Institute among officials and scholars in our country. Along the same line, the following article in Farsi, also aims at better introduction of the UNIDROIT to the academia.
