Collective redress in the EU

31-05-2011

The EU has been discussing improving enforcement of EU law and the means of properly compensating victims for over 20 years. Throughout these discussions, collective redress, already in existence in a number of Member States (MS), has been suggested as a possible solution. However, despite numerous studies and public consultations, as well as Green and White Papers, the Commission is yet to produce a concrete proposal.
