The Common Frame of Reference for European Contract Law and its Interaction with English and German Law


 

Prof Gerhard Dannemann

 

This joint research project on European Contract Law was co-headed by Professor Dannemann, Centre for British Studies, and Professor Stefan Vogenauer of the Institute of European and Comparative Law, University of Oxford. The project began in 2009 and was co-funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Over a period of three years, a group of 40 legal scholars investigated the proposed Common Frame of Reference for European Contract Law (CFR) and its interaction with domestic laws, as exemplified in this project by English and German law. The participating researchers covered some twenty different aspects of the CFR by working in teams of one British and one German author each. The project funding also covered the creation of a database on the CFR, which is publicly accessible on the project website.

This project was concluded in March 2013 with the publication of Gerhard Dannemann and Stefan Vogenauer (eds.), The Common European Sales Law in Context: Interactions with English and German Law, by Oxford University Press.

Contributors to the project included present and former centre staff Professor Gerhard Dannemann, Irene Maier, Christopher Schuller, Kasper Steensgaard and Professor Helmut Weber.
