Lex Mercatoria and Harmonization of Contract Law in the EU

By Ana M. Lopez-Rodriguez

This book addresses two main topics, lex mercatoriai - a transnational law of commerce - and contract law harmonization in the EU. Both are clear exponents of the diminishing role of the nation-state as lawmaker, and of the impact of the processes of globalization and regional integration upon the traditional system of compartmentalized and differentiated legal jurisdictions.
