One of the great steps towards a European Private International Law and for the facilitation of transborder trade is the Rome I Regulation which europeanised the applicable law for international contracts throughout the Union (though except Denmark). This Regulation has to be applied since the end of 2009. It has moderately reformed and replaced the former Rome Convention which had already proven its practical value for over two decades as many national decisions and also judgments of the European Court of Justice evidence.

This is reflected by the team of contributors that originates from all over Europe assembling first experts in their countries. The editors are Ulrich Magnus and Peter Mankowski who have already edited the well-received pan-European Commentaries on the Brussels I Regulation and the Brussels IIbis Regulation.

Today car crashes, holiday accidents, damage through defective products and other tort situations, that occur in Europe, not infrequently involve a foreign element. It is then always of crucial importance which law applies. For the first time the EU has unified the private international law rules for extra-contractual relations in the Rome II Regulation. The instrument is in force in all EU Member States (with the only exception of Denmark) since 2009. Meanwhile the European Court of Justice and national courts have rendered a considerable number of decisions concerning central provisions of the Regulation. The time is therefore ripe for a truly pan-European Commentary on the Rome II Regulation which can give guidance in its interpretation. The Commentary takes full account of the European nature of this instrument. This is also reflected by the team of contributors that originates from all over Europe assembling first experts in their countries.
