The European Civil Code: The Way Forward

Overview

Hugh Collins argues that the European Union should develop a civil code to provide uniform rules for contracts, property rights and protection against civil wrongs, thus drawing together the differing national traditions with respect to the detailed regulation of civil society. The benefits of such a code would lie not so much in facilitating cross-border trade, but in establishing foundations for a denser network of transnational relations of civil society, which in turn would help to overcome the present ...

These principled foundations for a more inclusive and less 'balkanised' civil society in Europe also provide elements of a required European Social Model that offers necessary safeguards for consumers, workers and disadvantaged groups against the pressures of market forces in an increasingly global economic system.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...timely and highly relevant...overall powerfully argued, well written, and instructive book...This is an interesting and stimulating reflection on an important topic. It can be read with much benefit by all those interested in the subject of legitimizing through law the European Union. Collins has undoubtedly justified a general need for THE EUROPEAN CIVIL CODE, and reading such a passionate and eloquent defense of continental-style codification written by a Professor of English Law is already quite exciting..."
