On 8 November 2019, the University of Milan (Università degli Studi di Milano) will host a second national seminar in the framework of the research project “Informed Choices in Cross-Border Enforcement” (IC2BE-JUSTAG-2016-02) funded by the Justice Programme (2014-2020) of the European Commission.

The progressive global establishment of international commercial courts has marked a defining moment in the growth of the legal services sector in international commercial dispute resolution. By offering litigants the option of having their disputes adjudicated by experienced and specialized judges, often from both civil law and common law traditions, these courts have resulted in the jurisdictions that embraced them become a choice destination for foreign trade and investment dispute resolution. In this regard, see in particular this publication by Prof. Dr. Marta Requejo Isidro.

On Friday 27 September 2019, the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg will host a workshop on Cross-Border Debt Recovery in the EU – Application of the “second generation” regulations in France and Luxembourg. The workshop is organised in the framework of the IC2BE Project, conducted by a European consortium comprising the MPI Luxembourg and the Universities of Antwerp, Freiburg (coord.), Madrid, Milan, Rotterdam, and Wroclaw. Funded by the Justice Programme (2014-2020) of the European Commission, this Project (JUST-AG-2016-02) aims to assess the working in practice of the “second generation” of EU Regulations on procedural law for cross-border cases, i.e., the European Enforcement Order (Regulation (EC) No 805/2004, “EEO”), the European Order for Payment (Regulation (EC) No 1896/2006, “EPO”), the European Small Claims Procedure (Regulation (EC) No 861/2007 as amended by Regulation (EU) No 2015/2421, “ESCP”) and the European Account Preservation Order (Regulation (EU) No 655/2014, “EAPO”) Regulations.
