Abstract

This paper discusses civil justice cooperation and perspectives of harmonisation in that context. It focuses on the European Parliament’s initiative for establishing common minimum standards and the ELI/Unidroit European Rules of Civil Procedure in particular. The question is to what extent these contribute to the coherence in European civil procedure and to improving judicial cooperation in civil matters.

Keywords: civil justice, judicial cooperation, ELI-Unidroit European Rules of Civil Procedure, common minimum standard
