Beaumont P (2016) Respecting Reverse Subsidiarity as an excellent strategy for the European Union at The Hague Conference on Private International Law – reflections in the context of the Judgments Project?. Europejski Przegląd Sądowy, 2016 (10), pp. 13-17. http://www.czasopisma.wolterskluwer.pl/european-judiciary-review
The author discusses the principle of reverse subsidiarity, according to which the Union should not act internally if its objectives can be better achieved by an international treaty. This principle was successfully applied in the context of the Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements of 2005 and the so-called Maintenance Convention of 2007 and also contributed to a revival of the Judgments Project at the Hague Conference on Private International Law. This paper presents the main provisions of the Preliminary Draft Convention (PDC) adopted by the Special Commission on the Judgments Project in June 2016.
