Regulation of debt collection in Europe - new book by our alumni, students, and faculty

December 6, 2022

Yet another collection of papers devoted to debt collection in Europe has been published as part of Routledge ‘Research in Finance and Banking Law’ series, edited by our alumnus, Cătălin-Gabriel Stănescu (now faculty of the University of Southern Denmark). 
Besides Cătălin’s contribution (co-authored with Albert Albanezi) titled ‘Romania’s struggle to regulate abusive debt collection practices,’ Jakub Kępiński’s (IBL 2011, now faculty of the law school of Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań) paper addresses the same concerns just from the perspective of Poland (‘Regulation of abusive informal debt collection practices in Poland’).
While in her paper, Ágnes Horváth, second year doctoral candidate of our Department, approaches the problem in the center of the book by asking ‘Can the Representative Actions Directive combat abusive debt collection practices in the European Union?’ – Professor Tibor Tajti’s piece looked upon these problems through the prism of the rule of law (‘Contemporary European debt collection practices through the prism of the rule of law’). The title is also available in the CEU Library's catalog.
