European Commission Rome II Study


The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) (in consortium with Civic Consulting) has been selected by the European Commission to conduct a study supporting the preparation of a report on the application of the Rome II Regulation (EC) No. 864/2007 on the law applicable to non-contractual obligations (JUST/2019/JCOO/FW/CIVI/0167).

The study assesses the 10-year application of the Rome II Regulation in the Member States and will support the Commission in the future review of the Regulation. It analyses all areas covered and looks into specific, cutting-edge questions, such as cross-border corporate violations of businesses against human rights and the potential impact of the development of artificial intelligence.

To gather views of practitioners and academics from all Member States, BIICL conducts a survey which is available here

Please contribute your experience to the study, if you have a particular expertise in the Rome II Regulation, or in one of the above-mentioned areas – namely cross-border torts related to artificial intelligence, corporate abuses against human rights, or defamation.
BIICL invites interested colleagues from all Member States to participate in the survey, but seeks in particular more contributions from: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Finland, Luxembourg, Romania and Slovenia.

Deadline: December 31st, 2020

More information about the Study is available on BIICL’s website (
