The HCCH 2019 Judgments Convention: Cornerstones, Prospects, Outlook – Conference Postponed

The readers of this blog are already aware that the University of Bonn plans to host a two-day conference on the Hague Convention of 2 July 2019 on the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters, in cooperation with the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Conference on Private International Law. The event, which was expected to take place on 9 and 10 September 2022, has now been rescheduled and will eventually take place on 9 and 10 June 2023.

As explained by the organisers, the new date will likely be closer to the likely date of accession of the European Union to the Convention. Actually, on 23 June 2022, the European Parliament, based on a report by the JURI Committee, gave its consent to the accession.

The list of speakers of the Bonn conference includes scholars and practitioners, as well as representatives of UNCITRAL and the European Commission.
