‘Building EU civil justice: challenges of procedural innovations bridging access to justice’

Access to civil justice is of paramount importance for enforcing rights of consumers and businesses and protecting fundamental rights. Key issues in the current efforts to improve access to justice at the EU and national level are digitalisation of procedures, privatisation of justice (ADR), an increased possibility of self-representation, and specialisation of courts and procedures. This ERC Consolidator project investigates how digitalisation, privatisation, self-representation, and specialisation trends influence access to justice in the selected representative Member States, and what the repercussions are for the emerging EU civil justice system. Five important jurisdictions identified for this project are Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Romania, and the United Kingdom (England and Wales).

For this project, Erasmus School of Law is looking for five researchers that have a passion for research, enjoy an international and multidisciplinary approach and environment, are independent thinkers ánd team players. The project is fully financed by the European Research Council under its ERC Consolidator scheme (funding ID 726032). While the financed project proposal is leading, the researchers will have the freedom to further develop their research project. The project is led by Prof. dr. Xandra Kramer (PI).
