The European Commission Recommendation establishes a framework to ensure a coherent horizontal approach to collective litigation in the EU context without harmonising national systems. The Commission clearly aims at distinguishing collective redress in Europe from the North American approach.
This seminar will explore the need for a specifically European model of mass litigation from a series of interdisciplinary perspectives. Collective redress mechanisms will be examined from the viewpoint of law and economics, behavioural sciences, and from a sociological and judicial perspective.
The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.
