Publication: EU Private International Law


EU Private International Law Peter Stone (University of Essex, UK) has published EU Private International Law: Harmonization of Laws, part of the Elgar European Law Series.

This book focuses on harmonization of conflict laws at the European Community level, which has been driven by the introduction of a series of conventions and regulations. It offers critical assessment of these advances across four main areas of concern: civil jurisdiction and judgments; the law applicable to civil obligations; family law; and insolvency.

Specifically, the measures examined and evaluated include:

• the Brussels I Regulation on civil jurisdiction and judgments
• the Regulation on uncontested claims
• the Rome Convention 1980 on contracts
• the Rome II Proposal on torts and restitution
• the Brussels IIA Regulation on matrimonial proceedings and parental responsibility
• the Regulation on insolvency proceedings.
