Cross-Border Debt Recovery in the EU – Workshop on the application of the “second generation” regulations in France and Luxembourg

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.

The workshop will address the application in practice of such Regulations in Luxembourg and France. Mr. François Biltgen (CJEU), Prof. Burkhard Hess, and Prof. Cyril Nourissat will chair the workshop’s Sessions. As was the case with the previous workshop hosted by the MPI Luxembourg on 8 June 2018, this event will bring together academics from various institutions, judges, bailiffs, lawyers and representatives from consumer organisations.

This workshop is conceived as a closed event. However, people having a special interest in the topic may apply for admission provided they submit a short explanation to motivate their request. The working languages will be English and French.
