A New Deal for Civil Justice? The New Deal for Consumers and the Justiciability of EU Consumer Rights
January 16, 2019
The Centre for the Study of European Contract Law holds its annual conference Thursday 11 and Friday 12 April 2019 at the University of Amsterdam
The 2019 CSECL conference revolves around the New Deal for Consumers that was proposed by the European Commission on 11 April 2018. It focuses on issues of civil justice that the New Deal aims to address – and, crucially, the question it appears to raise. A particular focus will be on the interaction and tension between different functions of enforcement mechanisms in consumer law, as well as the public and private interests involved at different levels. What or whom is the New Deal for?
The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners interested in (the future of) European private law, civil procedure, consumer law and, possibly, others with a more general interest in the enforcement of EU law and EU constitutional law.
