8th International Colloquium – European Insurance Law 

Thursday 28 October 2010

International Insurance Contracts in the European Union:
a New Legal Framework

Under the label of the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union of 2010

For the eighth time the Centre for Risk and Insurance Studies of the K.U.Leuven (CRIS) and the Centre de recherché en droit privé of the l’UCLouvain (CPRI) organise a conference on International European Insurance Law.

Ever since the advent of the European Insurance Directives, the quest has been for a system of private insurance contract law that is adapted to the size and structure of the integrated market.

The colloquium examines the policy practice of international B2B relationships and analyses the EU Regulations and Directives on conflicts of law and of jurisdiction. The merits of harmonisation efforts and the technique of an Optional Instrument will be subject of discussion.
