Die EU-Verbandsklage

Podiumsdiskussion, Livestream

Die EU-Verbandsklage kommt: Jetzt entscheidet das „Wie“ der Umsetzung über Erfolg oder Misserfolg

Die von der EU-Kommission im November 2020 verabschiedete Richtlinie geht in vielen Teilen weiter als die deutsche Musterfeststellungsklage. Unternehmen zeigen sich daher alarmiert und befürchten, dass eine Klageindustrie auf Deutschland zukommt. Verbraucherschützer dagegen begrüßen die neue Klageform und wünschen sich von der nationalen Umsetzung ein scharfes Schwert für die Durchsetzung der Rechte von Verbrauchern.

Unsere Podiumsdiskussion bringt Vertreter von allen Interessensgruppen zusammen. Sie diskutieren Stärken und Schwächen der Richtlinie zur EU-Verbandsklage und die mögliche nationale Umsetzung.

Nehmen Sie teil und diskutieren Sie mit! Hier gehts zum Livestream.
