The procedural reforms are usually analyzed from the imminent or effective publication of the corresponding legislative texts.  What is needed here, however, is broader research that serves as a general framework and explanation of phenomenon of a larger scope, both on an international and internal sphere.  This is the essential objective of a project that will undertake three specific topics at the same time: the harmonization in the scope of the European Union, the convergence of spheres traditionally reserved for the civil procedure or for the criminal procedure, and the constant and increasing remission to alternative methods to the procedure. The need for a parallel analysis of the three aspects complies with the hypothesis of their undeniable connection, according to the research group`s focus of such interrelationships and their consequences, its definition and a critical opinion on its mildness or the necessity to correct its tendency or adequately support it. The objectives are to offer a range of studies, meetings and analyses that are projected on the three repeated fields from three hypotheses: a) the civil procedure heads toward a harmonization that is sometimes uncritical, at times renouncing essentialities and guarantees; b) the criminal procedure tends to shape an accusatory system that, however, blurs its lines in the interest of an unknown “adversarialism”; y c) some of the alternative instruments actually opt for diverse tendencies, both in the face of the difficulties of harmonization and convergence, as well as like a mere manifestation of equal mechanisms.
