Chapter Summary

This chapter presents seven sub-chapters dealing with several articles relating to the Regulation (EC) of the European Parliament of the Council on the law applicable to non-contractual obligations (Rome II). The first sub-chapter gives the scope of the Regulation, while the second one deals with torts/delicts. A non-contractual obligation arising out of unjust enrichment is described in the third sub-chapter. The parties may agree to submit the non-contractual obligations to the law of their choice. The choice shall be expressed or demonstrated by the circumstances of the case; these are outlined in the fourth sub-chapter. The next two sub-chapters deal with some common rules covering the scope of the law applicable and rules of safety and conduct, and provisions covering, among others, habitual residence. The last sub-chapter gives the final provisions, with articles devoted to the list of conventions and review clause.

Keywords: European council; European parliament; habitual residence; non-contractual obligations
