The main objective of the Brussels Convention/Regulation is to attain the maximum level of recognition of judgments within the Community. In particular, the aim is to eliminate the need for any jurisdictional test to be applied by the court asked to recognize and enforce a judgment from another Member State. This chapter considers the way in which the European Court has interpreted the Brussels Convention, and to question whether some of its judgments pay sufficient attention to the necessity of establishing an efficient system for international litigation in the Community.
