Provides a unique compilation of original papers by recognized international experts in the field of civil procedure
Includes not only valuable insights in global and European harmonization of civil procedure, but also legislative and practical developments and policy perspectives from eight different jurisdictions
Combines different perspectives on the issue of globalization and harmonization of civil procedure, including perspectives of legal history, policy and law and economics, as well as the interaction with private (international) law
This book is an important contribution to the discussion about globalisation of civil procedure. Globalisation of legal matters and the inherent necessity of having to litigate in foreign courts or to enforce judgments in other countries considerably complicate civil proceedings due to great differences in civil procedure. This may jeopardise access to justice. As a result, the debate on the need for the harmonisation of civil procedure becomes ever more prominent. This book discusses the globalisation and harmonisation of civil procedure from various angles, including fundamental (international) principles of civil justice, legal history, private international law, law and economics and (European) policy. It offers important theoretical and practical perspectives and is valuable reading for, amongst others, academic researchers, policy makers, judges, legal practitioners and court bailiffs.
