SummaryIn October 2009 the European Commission submitted a Proposal for a Regulation on international succession law which shall enhance legal certainty and facilitate the enforcement of rights for European citizens when faced with cross-border successions. With its comments on the Commission Proposal the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law participates in a European-wide discussion and contributes academically to the increasing Europeanisation of private international law.
