The maze of European Union legislation: An analysis of Regulation No 650/2012 on matters of succession based on selected questions – qui prodest?Excerpt: If anyone asked me how the private law of any community of states in economic cooperation should be created so that it serves the citizens to the highest degree, my answer would be that it should start with the harmonisation of substantive law. First, the states should create a situation where the interpretation and application of similar legal institutions are very similar, and in some cases, even identical. Naturally, there are solutions that exclusively specific to the legal culture of a given state (making harmonisation difficult), but for the majority of substantive civil law institutions, national solutions emanate from the same source of law, namely Roman law and the Great Enlightened Codifications based on it.

THE FUTURE OF EUROPE THE OPINION OF THE EUROPEAN UNION CIVIL COOPERATION COUNCIL’S MEMBER ORGANISATIONS
While the European Economic Community was characterised by successful economic and social development, the European Union was rather home to crises and unsolved problems. Of these problems and signs of crises, we consider the following to be the most substantial.
A brutal war is being waged in the European Union between the disciples of normality and abnormality, morality and amorality, restricted sovereignty and full subjection, i.e. between nation states and federalists.
The inadequacy of the current European Union is increasingly evident, as the recent story of the tragic vaccine supply mess has also shown. The need to reform it on a new moral, political, social and economic basis is increasingly pressing.
