Brussels I

A colleague recently discovered an interesting article concerning the UK attempts to reintroduce the doctrine of forum non conveniens into the Brussels I regulation. The authors argue that to do this would be to allow the doctrine to be used politically/tactically to try to out-litigate claimants or to ensure claims were heard in other countries so as to defeat claims based on corporate social responsibility/human rights. See futhere here. The UK position is available here.
