Description:

In its Decision 2017/5 of 6 September 2017, the ELI Council adopted the proposal for this project to be carried out under the regular procedure in line with Article 12(2)(a) of the ELI Statute. Pietro Franzina (Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Milan, Italy; formerly University of Ferrara, Italy), and Richard Frimston (Russell-Cooke Solicitors, UK) were appointed as Project Reporters. In 2018, the Project Team drew up a Position Paper which can be accessed here. Kindly note that the statements and recommendations contained in the paper were not approved or endorsed by any statutory body of ELI and thus should not be taken to represent an official Statement, Instrument or position of ELI.
On 21 March 2020, ELI’s Membership approved the Project Team’s final report. The outcome is an analysis on the protection of adults in international situations. Where appropriate, it includes proposals regarding such protection as well as further issues surrounding the application of the Hague Convention of 13 January 2000 on the International Protection of Adults.  It addresses the following issues: (a) the bases and scope of the Union’s competences as regards the protection of adults in international situations; (b) the strategies that the Union should consider following in order to enhance the protection of adults in the relations between Member States; and (c) further improvements that the Union may promote with respect to the Hague Convention of 13 January 2000 on the International Protection of Adults without making use of its external competence or its legislative powers. Such analysis and proposals are put forward in preparation for the Special Commission on the Convention that the Hague Conference on Private International Law plans to convene in 2022. The report also includes a checklist intended for practitioners, to encourage the development of private mandates within the ambit of the substantive laws of the Member States.
Strides were and will be taken to bring the text to the attention of European institutions, the institutions of Member States (and selected third countries) and relevant stakeholders. The project was already presented to Members of the European Parliament, an ELI Institutional Member and an Observer to the ELI project. The report has also recently been brought to the attention of UK Law Societies, legislators and the Ministry of Justice, as the UK parliament is presently discussing legislation on private international law due to Brexit.
