On 11-12 April 2019, the conference A New Deal for Civil Justice? The New Deal for Consumers and the Justiciability of EU Consumer Rights will take place in Amsterdam. It is organised by the Centre for the Study of European Contract Law (CSECL) and revolves around the New Deal for Consumers that was proposed by the European Commission on 11 April 2018. The conference focuses on issues of civil justice that the New Deal aims to address – as well as, crucially, the questions it appears to raise. It will bring together researchers interested in (the future of) European private law, civil procedure, consumer law and, possibly, others with an interest in the enforcement of EU law and EU constitutional law.

CSECL particularly welcomes papers that expressly address the interaction and tension between different functions of (consumer law) adjudication and enforcement mechanisms, as well as the converging or diverging (public and private) interests involved at the different relevant levels.
