Lugano Convention on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters

The Lugano Convention of 30 October 2007 ("Lugano Convention"), as a parallel Convention to the Brussels I Regulation, extends the rules of European civil procedure to further countries of the European Economic Area (EEA) which do not belong to the EU. The first version was the 1988 Lugano Convention which was a parallel Convention to the 1968 Brussels Convention ("Brussels Convention"). This was replaced by the 2007 Lugano Convention, which ran, with a few exceptions, parallel to Brussels I. The provisions of the 2007 Lugano Convention do not yet run parallel to the Brussels Ia Regulation, and it is not certain when there will be a recast of the Lugano Convention.
