Stockholm 2.0 (or Strasbourg 1.0). The EU Justice Agenda for 2020.

The EU Commission has launched its update to the Stockholm program, its agenda for the EU’s judicial area. Conflict of laws is part of the EU’s judicial area program, whence part of the new program (with reference to its professed location of adoption one ought to call it the Strasbourg program) relates to conflicts.

It is in this respect heartening to see that conflicts is mentioned in particular with respect to the ambition to codify (or at least the ambition to review the suitability of codification). However stock taking and slowing the legislative pace is not mentioned. Whether that will happen, one imagines, will to a considerable degree depend on the priorities of the future commissioner.
