Over the last 25 years, the landscape of European contract law has been utterly transformed with the evolution of the Acquis communautaire in consumer law and the Principles of European Contract Law. The initial enthusiasm and approval for the programme has waned and, post Brexit, it currently faces increased criticism over its effectiveness.

In this collection, leading academics assess the project and ask if such judgments are fair and suggest how harmonisation in the field might be better achieved. Taking a four part approach, it looks at the uniform rules as they apply to the internal market; to national legislators and courts; to common and civil law and finally to non-member states. Critical and rigorous, it provides a timely and unflinching critique of one of the most important fields of harmonisation in the European Union.
