Jurisdiction under the Brussels II Regulation

This chapter introduces the origins, history, and changes of the Brussels IIb Regulation, which is also known as the Council Regulation (EU) 2019/1111 of 25 June 2019. It highlights the importance of knowing the legislative history and international instruments to achieve a proper understanding and application of the Regulation. The Brussels IIb Regulation primarily refers to the recognition and enforcement of decisions in matrimonial matters and the matters of parental responsibility and international child abduction. Thus, judges or practitioners should be aware of several basic principles of interpreting EU instruments before applying the Regulation. The chapter recognises the abolition of the need for a declaration of enforceability as the most significant change of the entire Brussels IIb Regulation.
