Conference 'Full harmonisation in European Consumer Law' will take place on 4-5 June 2010 in Frankfurt (Oder)
The conference 'Vollharmonisierung im Europäischem Verbraucherrecht' (yes, it will be held in German) is organized to discuss the forthcoming directive on consumer rights COM (2008) 614 that is still being worked on by the European Commission. One of the most controversial issues related to the proposal of the EC was that this directive was/is supposed to have a full harmonization character. That raised many questions as to the relation of this diretive to national general contractual laws. Therefore, it does not come as a surprise that whole conferences are devoted to this subject matter. The programme of the conference organized by the European University Viadrina may be found here.
