Looking for the heart

Many topics of European consumer law have by now been harmonised through EU Directives. Still, as many (or maybe even more) questions related to consumer contracts in the Internal Market remain subject to rules of national laws, e.g the boundaries of what is enforceable under the law (incl. immorality of contracts) and the meaning of parties' agreement (interpretation of contracts). Insofar as national rules yield similar results, a basis for further harmonisation of laws may be found. 

In the coming days, a discussion of the similarities and differences of European laws on a variety of matters of private law will take place at the 19th meeting of the project on 'The Common Core of European Private Law' in Torino. For more information, see the website and conference programme.
