Surveys on Brussels I Regulation

We are conducting a research, funded by an Action Grant of the European Commission, on the Brussels I-bis Regulation. 

We are curious to know how the new rules of the Brussels Regulation on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of civil judgment function in practice. The researchers are extremely grateful if you could could fill out the surveys (approx. 10 minutes) or forward these to others that might be interested. 

The survey is available in Dutch, English, French and German.
