  Add to Calendar 2020-04-21 11:00 2020-04-21 13:00 Europe/Paris The political philosophy of European contract law

This seminar will be held online using ZOOM. Registered participants will be provided with ZOOM dial-in details.

The aim of the seminar is to explore the relationship between the Europeanisation of contract law and justice. To this end, we will address fundamental political questions of European contract law from the perspectives of leading contemporary political theories.

Session 1: Introduction & European contract law

The seminar will start with a brief introduction of the objectives of the course and of the research project to which it is closely related. Then will proceed by situating the core questions central to this. To this end, the first two seminars will briefly discuss the states of play in the two debates this seminar aims to bring together, ie European contract law and political philosophy.

In seminar 1, we will start with a brief general discussion of EU contract law. The main objective is to set the scene by presenting some of the main milestones, players, acts and controversies. This will provide the

participants with a general but concrete sense of what we are talking about when we speak of ‘European contract law’.

Literature: Manuscript, chapter 1 and chapter 2, section 1.
