This thoroughly revised and updated second edition analyses in detail the current development of private international law at European Union level.

Peter Stone examines the provisions of, and the case-law on, measures such as:-

  • the Brussels I Regulation on civil jurisdiction and judgments;
  • the Rome I and II Regulations on the law applicable to contractual and non-contractual obligations;
  • the Brussels IIA Regulation on matrimonial proceedings and parental responsibility;
  • Regulation 4/2009 on maintenance; and Regulation 1346/2000 on insolvency proceedings.
The author welcomes, in principle, the movement towards European harmonisation in the sphere of private international law, but has misgivings over various aspects of the current legislation and case-law. Given the considerable development in this area of law since the first edition, law academics, law students, and legal practitioners interested in international litigation in matters governed by private law will warmly welcome this new book.
