The Max Planck Institute Luxembourg is pleased to announce the publication of a new book on Privatizing Dispute Resolution.

This book collects the proceedings of the 3rd IAPL-MPI Post-Doctoral Summer School which was held in Luxembourg from July 1st to 4th, 2018. The overarching topic was privatizing dispute resolution, trends and limits. The notion of privatizing dispute resolution was understood in a broad sense.

The Summer School aims at bringing together outstanding young post-doctoral researchers of any nationality dealing with European, international and comparative procedural law, as well as with other relevant mechanisms for dispute resolution. It gives them an opportunity to openly share and discuss their current research project with other young colleagues, but also with experienced law professors who guide them, comment on their projects and advise them on the way forward, creating thus a forum among peers. It also allows the researchers to have their paper published following a thorough peer-review process during which constructive feedback and guidance is given by the Professors.

Since it has been established, the Summer School has acquired an excellent reputation, attracting the highest quality of Professors and researchers to the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg. The fruitful mix of generations is at the heart of the project which dealt with domestic law, comparative law, European law and international law, not only procedural but also substantial.

The 3rd Summer School brought together fourteen young researchers from Europe and further afield, who presented papers on which comments were given by nine renowned Professors.

The book is available for purchase through Nomos.
