Resolution of International Insurance Disputes Turkish and the EU Private International Law Solutions & ADR Methods

December 14, 2018

The certificate program on insurance law had the objective of studying resolution of insurance disputes with international character. In this respect, it provided a general overview of the characteristics of cross-border insurance contracts and the type of disputes. The program aimed to answer three basic questions: the international jurisdiction of national courts, the applicable law to insurance contracts, and finally, the use of alternative dispute resolution methods (ADR) for cross-border insurance disputes. Considering the fact that this certificate program has been organized under the HOPINEU project, a special emphasis has been given to the comparison of the Turkish Private International Law Code and the EU Law provisions. It also enabled the students to identify problematic areas where a harmonization is needed between Turkish and the EU Law.
