Project "Focus on collective redress"
In 2012 BIICL was awarded a grant by the European Commission (JUST/2011-2012/JCIV/AG/3398) to conduct a study on collective redress mechanisms in different EU Member States.
The aim of the project was to develop comprehensive research and discussion output on collective redress across Europe, emphasizing cross-national comparisons, underlining issues of commonality and difference. Through the establishment of a network on collective redress we involved academics, practitioners, policy-makers, litigation funders, consumers and SME representative bodies in our research and held various meetings and seminars. Experts coming from different legal backgrounds provided an exciting debate on the subject-matter. One durable result of the project is this website which provides, on an open access basis, information on legislation, case law and materials across Europe.
The website has been updated in 2022 with the support of Aston University.
