The HCCH 2019 Judgments Convention: Cornerstones, Prospects, Outlook

The Institute of Civil Procedure Law (Prof. Dr. Matthias Weller | Prof. Dr. Moritz Brinkmann | Prof. Dr. Nina Dethloff) in cooperation with the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH) organizes an international conference on the (new) Hague Recognition and Enforcement Convention (HAV Convention) of July 2, 2019. This legal instrument is often referred to as a "gamechanger" for international civil procedure law and will enter into force on September 1, 2023.

On 23 June 2022, the European Parliament by adopting JURI Committee Report A9-0177/2022 gave its consent to the accession of the European Union to the HCCH 2019 Judgments Convention. The Explanatory Statement describes the convention with a view to the "growth in international trade and investment flows" as an "instrument [...] of outmost importance for European citizenz ans businesses" and expressed the hope that the EU's signature will set "an example for other countries to join". However, the Rapporteur, Ms. Sabrina Pignedoli, also expresses the view that the European Parliament should maintain a strong role when considering objections under the bilateralisation mechanism provided for in Art. 29 of the Convention. Additionally, some concerns were raised regardings the protection of employees and consumers under the instrument. Given these important steps towards accession, June 2023 should be a perfect time to delve deeper into the subject-matter, and the Conference is certainly a perfect opportunity for doing so:

The list of speakers of our conference includes internationally leading scholars, practitioners and experts from the most excellent Universities, the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH), the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), and the European Commission (DG Trade, DG Justice). The Conference is co-hosted by the Permanent Bureau of the HCCH.

Information on participating / attending:
The Organizers kindly ask participants to contribute with EUR 220.- to the costs of the event and with EUR 60.- to the conference dinner, should they wish to participate. There is a limited capacity for young scholars to contribute with EUR 110.- to the conference (the costs for the dinner remain unchanged).
