Regional interdisciplinary research on “Collective redress mechanisms in light of the European Commission Recommendation (2013/396/EU)”

Currently ConWeb Network with its delegated experts is part of regional interdisciplinary and comprehensive research on “Collective redress mechanisms in light of the European Commission Recommendation (2013/396/EU) on common principles for injunctive and compensatory collective redress mechanisms emphasizing cross-national comparisons, underlining issues of commonality and difference (focus on damage claims)”. The objective of the research is to analyse the existing deficits and different obstacles in their entirety for an adequate enforcement of collective redress according to the consumer protection laws in SEE countries and to develop relevant suggestions for the improvement of the situation.

The research is structured into six Parts: 1. National compliance with the relevant EU acquis; 2. Legal framework for collective redress; 3. Institutional framework for collective redress; 4. The role of courts, inspection bodies, regulatory bodies, ombudsman and others in collective redress; 5. The role of consumer organisations in collective redress; and 6. Recommendations and conclusions.

The key findings and recommendations from the regional research will be published in English compiled into one publication to be issued beginning of 2018.
