In this chapter, I reflect about the state and future of European collective redress. The goal is to look at the broader perspective. Various (complex) litigation tools exist, which all aim at achieving collective redress. I see the latter as the goal or outcome of dispute resolution processes. The objective is not to sketch a comprehensive overview of what is going on in the (currently) 28 Member States, but to share some general observations that, according to me, should and could steer the sometimes highly controversial debate.
