Conference on "Tension Between Universal and Regional Unification of Private Law"
16 & 17 February 2012
Erasmus School of Law, Rotterdam
The theme of this Conference is the tension, if not direct conflict, existing between uniform EU law and conventions of uniform private law to which EU member states are party, but the EU itself is not. As is illustrated by a number of cases brought before the ECJ in recent years, courts in member states are increasingly confronted with conflicts of duty in cases where uniform EU law and conventions of uniform maritime and transport law are of simultaneous application. For courts in member states it may sometimes appear as if the only way in which to comply with EU law is by breaking their country’s obligations under international treaties and vice versa.
