This book deals with life time contracts, the group of contracts which generally have the most important role to play in people's daily lives and existence. These establish social long-term relations which, with regard to certain periods of the lifetime of individuals, provide essential goods, services, labour and income opportunities for self-realization and participation. The book is divided in five parts (Introduction; Life Time in Contract Law; Labour Contracts; Consumer Credit Contracts; Residential Tenancy Contracts). The book argues that life time contracts should be integrated into the codification of modern private law. The book is written under the auspices of EuSoCo - a research programme that focuses specifically on lif time contracs in labour, housing and consumer credit as part of the European Contract Law Study Group.
