The Emergence of EU Contract Law

This concluding chapter draws together the key themes of the book by highlighting the different perspectives from which the Europeanization of contract law has been explored and on which the book has been constructed. The key theme of the book is that the EU’s multi-level, open architecture in which a variety of legal spaces are superimposed and interpenetrated with each other renders diversity and fragmentation as inevitable features of European contract law. Rather than bemoaning diversity, however, it is contended that it is normatively attractive. This requires a recalibration of the notion of Europeanisation so that it can be understood in a way that is not antagonistic to diversity. A more sensitive, flexible and pluralist approach to the Europeanization of contract law has therefore been advocated, one which makes a greater attempt to welcome diversity as a foundational value within its frame.

Keywords:   europeanization, multi-level, diversity, fragmentation, pluralism
