Proceedings of the conference held in Vienna on 22nd January 2010 - including a postscript in honour of Fritz Reichert-Facilides
Following the publication of the Principles of European Insurance Contract Law (PEICL) in 2009, there has been significant political and academic discussion on their possible use as an optional instrument. Experts’ views on the topic were exchanged at a conference held in Vienna on 22nd January 2010. The distinguished speakers represented European politics, legal science, insurance industry, insurance intermediaries and consumers. In their keynote speeches, these independent experts, who were not involved in drafting the PEICL, presented their critical, unbiased opinions on the project.
This volume presents a collection of the speeches and includes reports on the subsequent discussions of the Vienna conference. It also includes a postscript in commemoration of the late Prof. Dr. FRITZ REICHERT-FACILIDES, LL.M. (Ann Arbor), whose visionary ideas led to the creation of the Project Group "Restatement of European Insurance Contract Law" and to the drafting of the PEICL.
