The European Union and National Civil Procedure

Edited by: Anna Nylund, Bart Krans

'This publication is extremely interesting since it shows that the law of the European Union has an impact on national procedural law. Cross-fertilisation is indeed a very important tool.'--Marcel Storme, Honorary Pres. of the International Assoc. of Procedural Law ***This book discusses the impact of EU law on selected national legal systems. The authors analyze how the civil procedure system of their countries has reacted to increasing Europeanisation and the influence of EU law. They identify significant changes and disseminate the reasons for particular developments and the further implications of EU law on the civil procedure. Europe is in a period of increasing Europeanisation of civil procedure. Procedural elements of EU law are based on decentralised enforcement, leaving enforcement and procedural issues to the Member States. Consequently, there is vast amount of EU case law that is relevant for national procedural law. The supremacy of EU law and, inter alia, the requirements of effectiveness and equivalence may be relevant for several topics of national civil procedural law. Both EU legislation and doctrinal changes in EU case law touch upon various topics of the procedural law of the Member States. A comprehensive comparison between the countries represented in the book is made. (Series: Ius Commune Europaeum, Vol. 150) [Subject: EU Law, National Law]
