Short description The project aims to provide an in-depth analysis of the advantages and challenges inherent in the Europeanization of private international law in the field of successions. The subject has recently formed the subject of EU Regulation No. 650 of 4 July 2012 concerning jurisdiction, applicable law and the recognition and enforcement of decisions and the acceptance and enforcement of authentic instruments in matters of succession, as well as the establishment of a European Certificate of Succession. The said Regulation, though formally in force since the usual delay of twenty days from its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union, will apply, according to the general rule posed by its Article 83, par. 1, to the succession of persons deceased from the 17th August 2015 onwards. Accordingly, the project proposes to provide the prospective users of the new private international law regime introduced by the Regulation, and among those namely notaries, judges, holders of public records and lawyers in private practice, with a timely guide in respect of the most significant and problematic aspects of the rules as embodied in the Regulation, taken of their own and in coordination with other applicable legal rules, as contained either in other Regulations or different instruments adopted by the EU institutions or in international conventions of which any of the Member States are parties.
