The harmonisation of private international law in Europe has advanced rapidly since the entry into force of the Treaty of Amsterdam. Most aspects of private international law are now governed or at least affected by EU legislation, and there is a substantial and growing body of case-law from the European Court as well as the courts of the Member States. This timely Handbook addresses key questions and problems that currently exist in the rules of private international law laid down by European Union regulations.

Bringing together perspectives from both civil law and common law traditions, the book mainly considers issues relating to the Brussels I Regulation on civil jurisdiction and judgments, and to the Rome I and II Regulations on choice of law in respect of contractual or non-contractual obligations. Weaknesses in the current law are identified, and suggestions are made for possible improvements. The expert contributors focus on currently relevant problems including some issues which have tended to be neglected.

Academics, law students and public officials interested in private international law will find this Handbook to be a valuable resource. Both practising lawyers and commercial lobbyists will also find many useful insights.
Critical Acclaim
‘This collection of substantial and detailed chapters reflects current research on important and topical areas in the conflict of laws, such as Internet transactions, International sales of goods, and privacy. It will be of both use and interest to all practitioners and academics in the area as it provides a detailed analysis, within the political and commercial context, of many of the most complex issues arising out of the Brussels I, Rome I and Rome II Regulations and associated jurisprudence, including the role of non-State law, mandatory rules, and the domicile of companies.’
– Elspeth Berry, Nottingham Trent University, UK

‘This book offers a very timely and exquisite insight into some of the most pressing challenges of EU private international law – itself an area of the law with growing impact on practice, academia, and the further development of EU law generally. Peter Stone and Youseph Farah have gathered a steller team of commentators to guide the reader through some of the intricate mazes of EU conflicts law. A delight.’
– Geert van Calster, University of Leuven, Belgium
