Electronic Consumer Contracts and International Private Law is concerned with international private law rules for electronic consumer contacts. It deals with three key areas of consumer protection - firstly the maximization of consumer protection via the consumer's jurisdiction and law, and secondly by proposing that a new connecting factor be used to improve the efficiency of juridical protection for consumers who contract with foreign sellers by electronic means. Thirdly, the book recommends that existing jurisdiction and choice of law rules should be amended further to provide a basis for the consumer to sue in his own jurisdiction and for the law of the consumer's domicile to apply.
The book will be a valuable resource for academics, students and practitioners working in the areas of international private law, electronic commerce law and consumer law.
