Publication of the Study on the Enforcement of European Union Consumer Law conducted for the Ministry for Consumer Protection

Book Launch with Minister Paulette Lenert on 4 October 2021

The coordinated enforcement of consumer protection has become a top priority in Europe. In 2019, the European Union adopted Directive 2019/2161 on the Better Enforcement and Modernisation of EU Consumer Protection Law. By November 2021, EU Member States shall revise and modernise their national laws on the public and private enforcement of EU consumer protection. New legislation in this area is also due in Luxembourg.

In 2019, the Ministry for Consumer Protection asked the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law to conduct a comparative study on the private and public enforcement of EU consumer law in different EU Member States, especially the neighbour States of the Grand Duchy. Researchers of the Institute elaborated a Study covering France, Belgium, Estonia, England & Wales (before Brexit), Luxembourg and Germany.

The results of the Study are now available as a book, which was published in the book series of the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg. The publication (500 pages) encompasses six national reports and a general assessment.

On Monday 4 October 2021, the principal authors and editors of the publication, Dr Stephanie Law and Dr Vincent Richard, will present the main findings of the study during the official book launch.
The event will be organised as a webinar, in the presence of Minister Paulette Lenert.
