Research stay at UC3M: DEPARTMENT OF PRIVATE LAW
The project “The Common European Sales Law and the future international contract law” focuses on the recent developments in European Contract law and their possible effects outside of the European context on the international contract law. The emphasis of research thus far on the relationship between European and international contract law has primarily been on the impetus of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) on several national laws and on legislation of the European Union (in particular on the Consumer Sales Directive 1999/44/EC). This research project will now shift the focus to the question of the innovative approaches that have been developed in European contract law since the Consumer Sales Directive and to what extent these can stimulate the future developments of international contract law. His research project will particularly analyse the “coverage” of the consumer in the proposal for a Common European Sales Law (CESL; COM(2011) 635 final); the inclusion of the “digital world” in the CESL, and the crucial role of standardised contracts corresponding to the present importance of “mass contracting” within the CESL.
