BIICL collaboration with German Funder on Collective Redress Project

02/03/2018

BIICL has recently worked with the German public body, the Gesellschaft fur internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on a collective redress project. As part of the project, BIICL undertook comparative law research in relation to a selection of six key European Member States (Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and England / Wales) on the topic of collective redress mechanisms in light of the 2013 European Commission Recommendation. This was a desk-based exercise, drawing upon the existing BIICL research on Collective Redress, and allowed also for the updating by local partners of the website information on Collective Redress legislation, reform initiatives and relevant case law.
