Comparative law report on Rome II Regulation

Readers may be interested to know that a Study on the Rome II Regulation (EC) 864/2007 on the law applicable to non-contractual obligations has been published by the European Commission.

The 824-page study conducts a legal analysis and assessment of the practical experiences and problems of interpretation in the application of the Rome II Regulation for the period 2010-2020, in order to support the Commission in the future review of the Regulation.

It analyses all areas covered by the Regulation and looks into specific, cutting-edge questions, such as the interaction between the Regulation and cross-border corporate violations of human rights, the potential impact of the development of artificial intelligence, and SLAPPs (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation).

The Executive Summary is provided in English, French and German, and after an introduction to the methodology there follows a legal analysis of areas of particular interest, and national reports from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuana, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom and Ireland. Section 2.4 contains a comparative table across the Member States, and even the bibliography is very useful.
