EU Commission study on the impact of national civil procedures on judicial cooperation and consumer protection
Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for International, European and Regulatory Procedural Law, Luxemburg
SummaryIn 2017 the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg completed a study on the impact of national procedural laws on mutual trust and on consumer protection. The study embodies the most comprehensive, empirically-driven comparative investigation of civil procedure in Europe to date. It identifies areas where targeted measures would increase mutual trust as well as consumer protection, and expounds concrete proposals – some of which have already been taken up by the European Commission – to overcome the current obstacles to effective judicial cooperation and consumer protection.
