MPI Luxembourg / KU Leuven / EAPIL Conference: “The Brussels Ibis Reform”


In view of the upcoming revision of the instrument, the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg in collaboration with EAPIL and KU Leuven hosts a (hybrid) international conference on “The Brussels Ibis Reform” scheduled for Friday, 9 September 2022. As part of the ongoing efforts within EAPIL, the event will serve to discuss the results of the corresponding working group chaired by Burkhard Hess and Geert van Calster as well as the application of the Regulation in general. In addition, legal experts will present on pertinent topics such as insolvency proceedings, arbitration and third state relations. The overarching goal of the discourse is to prepare an academic position paper that is to advise the the European Commission in the – mandatory although delayed –  evaluation process.

Further information on the MPI Conference and online registration can be found in the attached programme and on the event’s website. A first overview of relevant aspects is provided in a Research Paper by Burkhard Hess.
