effects of an opt in or opt out procedure on claimants (full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

Mechanisms to address class actions can essentially be reduced in two models: an opt in model and and opt out model. The central question in this study concerns the influence of an opt in regime or an opt out regime in relation to other factors which determine if claimants litigate individually, join the class or do not litigate at all.
