TitleMind the gap? A critical analysis of the recognition and enforcement of cross-border consumer ODR outcomes in the EU
AuthorsHourani, S.
Abstract

The EU ODR platform was created with the objective of offering better access to justice for the consumer, especially for cross-border disputes. The recognition and enforcement of cross-border ODR outcomes in the EU is however a complex procedure, and not always possible under the current EU legal framework. This article therefore questions whether a digitalised ESCP procedure is a better alternative to the enforcement of consumer redress for cross-border electronic-based small claims procedures.
