SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Recognition of judgments in civil and commercial matters and right to a fair trial within the European judicial area: abolition of exequatur, limits to recognition and powers of control endowed to the courts of the addressed Member State. Three main issues shall be dealt with: (i) the new regime of recognition of judgments in civil and commercial matters as brought about by the reg. no. 1215/2012, so called Brussels Ia, which repeals and replaces reg. no. 44/2001, so called Brussels I; (ii) the limits that, notwithstanding the revision carried out by reg. Brussels Ia, still remain as to the circulation of judgments within the EU judicial area and the powers of control that the courts of the Member State addressed are enabled to exercise on foreign judgments in order that said limits are effective; (iii) in particular, the limit represented by the public policy of the Member State addressed, which shall be dealt with focussing, in particular, on (a) its concrete application, having specific regard to the prohibition of re-examining the foreign judgment as to its substance, prohibition which binds the courts of the Member State addressed pursuant to the Brussels Ia regime; (b) the principles which form part of its core content in the light of the case law of the EU Court of justice, of the European Court of Human Rights and of national courts; (c) its capability to carry out the task - typical of public policy - as a last-instance instrument of protection of the constitutional identity of Member States.

Recognition of personal and familial status between the child's best interest, protection of private and family life and protection of cultural identity. Three main issues shall be dealt with: (i) the rules governing recognition of personal and familial status in the light of the most recent evolution of private international law at both the internal and EU levels; (ii) the protection of the child's best interest and the protection of private and familial life in the case law of the EU Court of Justice and of the European Court of Human Rights; (iii) the critical issues associated with the Italian jurisprudence regarding recognition of international adoption of children and, more in general, recognition of familial and personal status created abroad, as well as the solutions capable of reconciling said jurisprudence with the case law of the European Court of Human Rights.
