LAW FACULTY EU HARMONIZATION OF PRIVATE INTERNATIONAL LAW
Scarica il file in formato Pdf  AND EXTERNAL RELATIONS IN FAMILYAND SUCCESSION MATTERS
Over the last years the legislative activity of the European Community in the field of private international law has been devoting particular attention to family and succession matters, as shown by Regulation (EC) No 2201/2003 (Brussels IIbis), but also by a number of Draft Regulations and Green Papers adopted in 2005 and 2006, embracing all P.I.L. aspects(jurisdiction, recognition and enforcement of judgments and applicable law).Among the various issues raised by these acts, those concerning the relations with third States are particularly important and delicate, even because they shed light on the general characters of the emerging EC system of private international law. On the one hand, the issue of the external competence in this field is to be assessed, in the light of the ECJ’s ruling in the Lugano Opinion of 7 February 2006. On the other hand, special attention will be given to the scope of these acts in so far as private relations connected with third countriesare concerned.The topics above will be discussed in an international conference organised by University Carlo Cattaneo, with the aim of  proposing specific solutions. It will present the results of theResearch Project EU Harmonisation of Private International Law and External Relations in Family and Succession Matters, carried out by a Group of European scholars.This Research was made possible thanks to the funding provided by the European Community under the Framework Programme for Judicial Cooperation in Civil Matters 2005. The proceedings of the conference will be held in English.The Conference is funded by the European Community under the Framework Programme for Judicial Cooperation in Civil Matters 2005 (Agreement No JLS/2005/FPC/50 – CE-0036594/00-04).
