Transporting Goods in the EU: An Interplay of International, European and National Law

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article investigates the extent to which international transport conventions for the carriage of goods are reliant on European and national law. As will be seen, since the international convention must be recognised by the applicable law, which in turn is determined by the forum hearing the dispute, the question of whether a particular transport convention is to be applied depends on considerations beyond the mere scope of application of the convention. European and national law provide the legal background within which the convention rules apply and by which they are complemented.
