On May 21 2012, in Thessaloniki, an international conference took place on the “Issues of Estoppel and Res Judicata in Anglo-American and Greek Law”.

This volume includes the papers presented at the conference, preceded by a general introduction to the institutions of Estoppel and Res Judicata by Assoc. Prof. Georgios Diamantopoulos and followed by presentations by Prof. Neil Andrews (res judicata and finality), Prof. Kalliopi Makridou (principles of preclusion and res judicata), Dr Marcos Dracos (estoppel in english contract law) and Assoc. Prof. Georgios Diamantopoulos (judicial estoppel). The comments made during the conference are also included, while the volume concludes with a summary of the conferenceʼs findings formulated by Prof. Kalliopi Makridou.

The doctrines of estoppel and res judicata show the different procedural philosophies in the common law and civil law systems of civil justice but, despite the difficulties, comparative research works for harmonizing procedural systems.

Τον Μάιο του 2012 διοργανώθηκε στην Θεσσαλονίκη ένα διεθνές συνέδριο με αντικείμενο: «Θέματα της αρχής του αποκλεισμού και του δεδικασμένου στο αγγλοαμερικανικό και ελληνικό δίκαιο».

Τα παρόντα πρακτικά περιέχουν μία γενική εισαγωγή στις αρχές του αποκλεισμού και του δεδικασμένου από τον Γ. Διαμαντόπουλο, τις εισηγήσεις που παρουσιάστηκαν στο συνέδριο από τους Ν. Andrews («δεδικασμένο και τελεσιδικία»), K. Μακρίδου («Οι αρχές του αποκλεισμού και του δεδικασμένου»), Μ. Δράκο («Η αρχή του αποκλεισμού στο αγγλικό ενοχικό δίκαιο») και Γ. Διαμαντόπουλο («Η αρχή του αποκλεισμού στα πλαίσια της δικονομίας»), τις παρεμβάσεις που έγιναν, καθώς και τα συμπεράσματα που διατυπώθηκαν από την Κ. Μακρίδου.

Οι αρχές του αποκλεισμού και του δεδικασμένου δείχνουν την διαφορετική δικονομική φιλοσοφία του αγγλοσαξωνικού και ηπειρωτικού δικαίου στην πολιτική δικονομία, όμως, παρόλες τις δυσκολίες, η συγκριτική έρευνα προσπαθεί να φέρει αποτελέσματα στην εναρμόνιση των δικονομικών συστημάτων.
