Abstract

The Brussels I Recast and the Rome I Regulations are companions in a gradual unification process of private international law. Their predecessors already had a complementary function as the Rome Convention was created to thwart the tactical manoeuvre of forum shopping possible under the Brussels Convention. By embedding private international law matters in the corpus of Community law, the policy on judicial cooperation in civil matters strengthened their interrelationship even further. Keeping in mind the consistency of the unification process, the conventions were transformed into Regulations with modified content. Serving internal market purposes and being interlinked through a common Treaty competence, the Regulations serve as reference points of interpretation.
