What Measures Should the EU Adopt to Enhance the Protection of Adults in Europe?

As announced a few weeks ago, the European Association of Private International Law has set up a Working Group charged with responding to a public consultation launched by the European Commission, aimed at gathering evidence on the measures that the EU may adopt to enhance the protection of vulnerable adults in Europe.

The Group consists of seven members: Pietro Franzina (Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Milan), Estelle Gallant (Toulouse 1 Capitole University), Cristina González Beilfuss (University of Barcelona), Katja Karjalainen (University of Eastern Finland), Thalia Kruger (University of Antwerp), Tamás Szabados (Eötvös Loránd University), Jan von Hein (University of Freiburg).

A webinar will take place on 10 March 2022 from 5 pm to 7 pm CET, organised by the Working Group. The Group intends to present a preliminary draft response and receive feedback from interested experts, practitioners and stakeholders.

Attendance is free, but prior registration is required. Those interested in attending the webinar are invited to fill in the form available here by 9 March at noon.
