Abstract: Abstract This article aims to analyse whether the MERCOSUR rules that comprise Private International Consumer Law, in terms of definition, international jurisdiction, and applicable law, were influenced by existing regulations in the European Union, especially the Rome Convention of 1980 and the Brussels Convention of 1968, later transformed into European Union regulations. To do so, the article examines the Law of MERCOSUR, so that, through descriptive and comparative normative methods, it is possible to highlight to what extent the law produced in MERCOSUR gathers the solutions of European norms and with respect to what aspects it has departed from them, perhaps offering greater protection to cross–border consumers.
