ERC project discussed at Queen Mary University London
Our conference Frontiers in Civil Justice will be held on 16-17 November 2020. We will address four key issues in civil justice requiring a deeper and renewed reflection in light of their contribution of facilitating access to justice. These are the shaping of the interaction between formal and informal justice, the digitalization of consumer dispute resolution (ODR), the collectivizing and monetizing of civil litigation and efforts of bringing justice closer to citizens. The conference will bring together academics, policymakers, practitioners and representatives of civil society to critically reflect on the opportunities and possible drawbacks ensuing from these paramount developments.
The outline of the conference, including confirmed keynote speakers, is avaible here. Further details will be made available soon.
Call for Papers!
For the last part of the conference we welcome abstracts on the topic ‘Innovations in Civil Justice - Bringing Justice Closer to Citizens’. Please send in your abstract of max. 500 words before 31 July. Further details can be found here.
We will have great speakers and look forward to exciting debates. We hope to see you in Rotterdam!
We are recruiting!

On 22 November 2017, Xandra Kramer and Jos Hoevenaars presented the ERC project at the Erasmus-Queen Mary Dialogues meeting at Queen Mary University London. Xandra presented the background, objectives, and challenges of the project. Jos zoomed in on his postdoc project on self-representation, benefitting from two meetings he had with English experts on the day before. We received valuable feedback from commentator Eva Nanopoulos (Queen Mary) and other participants.
