European Code on Private International Law: Cost of Non Europe Report

14-06-2013

On 11 October 2012, the Committee on Legal Affairs (JURI) requested a Cost of Non-Europe report (CoNE) on the perspective of having a European Code on Private International Law. This Cost of Non-Europe report analyses the formal question of the code, and more particularly the question of 'gaps' in the Private International Law of the European Union which need to be filled, and the cost to citizens and businesses of not filling them. It also contains quantitative and qualitative arguments in favour of a European Code on Private International Law. This report has been drawn up by the European Parliament's European Added Value Unit, building on external expertise contributed by GHK and presented in a separate annex.
