About the Authors
  • This book emanates from a duo-colloquium which explored the Europeanisation of private law in the context of efforts to consolidate the consumer acquis, the Draft Common Frame of Reference, the appointment of an Expert Group on a Common Frame of Reference in the area of European contract law, the passage of the Consumer Rights Directive and the proposed Common European Sales Law. This book, with fully updated contributions, critically reflects on whether the process of Europeanisation, which has shaped private law in the EU Member States, has now reached a significant turning point in its development, a point of punctuated equilibrium. Written by a team of leading authors, the topics covered will be of concern in all European legal systems and beyond.

    • Explores the highly topical area of Europeanisation of private law at a watershed moment
    • Investigates the broader dimensions of European private law and provides an understanding to the scope of protective mechanisms
    • Provides comparative insights into common and civil law jurisdictions
