The simplification of cross-border enforcement within the EU, and in particular the full abolition of the exequatur, should be accompanied by procedural safeguards to guarantee the respect for fundamental principles of civil procedure. This research intends to explore which requirements may be derived from, and what the role is of, the European Convention on Human Rights, in particular Articles 6 and 13 thereof regarding the right to a fair trial and access to effective remedies, within the context of cross-border enforcement in the EU.
