The political philosophy of European contract law

Dates:
  • Tue 26 May 2020 11.00 - 13.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-05-26 11:00 2020-05-26 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 6: Weaker party protection

The sixth seminar discusses the question of whether contract law should differentiate between different types of contracting parties in function of their relative or absolute relational or social weakness. In other words, should contract law protect certain weaker parties? And if so, who should count as worthy of protection and what kinds of protection should they be granted? Given that consumer protection has been central to EU private law, this question goes to the core of the justifiability of the private law acquis.

Literature: Manuscript, chapter 6
