This contribution clarifies the meaning of some international procedural law concepts and tools in light of the decades-long implementation of the "Brussels system": the 1968 Brussels Convention, the two Lugano Conventions of 1988 and 2007 and the two EU Regulations n. 44/2001 and 1215/2012. Through a specific focus on the three-fold concept of "exclusive jurisdiction," it foresees the consequences of the EU approach to civil jurisdiction for the European Area of Freedom Justice and Security, for third States and, last but not least, for Lugano States.
