This paper tries to describe in a tangential way the role of a figure that has been considered to be sometimes enigmatic, imprecise and ethereal, and that has always playe dan important rol, and which is none other than the so–called “ordre public” [public policy]. To do this, we will try to see if there is something new about this concept and what is its relationship with other social and legal sciences. In this sense, we will study the possible links that may exist between “ordre public” [public policy] and social order; in the same way, see if there is any concordance with its postulates with those of social morality, as well as with those rights called fundamentals in a certain legal system. We will also look whether there are correspondences with some branches of the law such as economic law, public law and including within this, the constitutional law, all that, in light of a legal, as well as from the social sciences position. This study will be made in order to respond to several questions regarding the current relevance and application of local and international public policy rules, to the different legal situations that arise not only in the spectrum of private international law, but also in the development of current societies.
