Professor Ewoud Hondius has been one of the most successful architects of comparative law research and education in the Netherlands. He has undertaken numerous efforts to advocate the unification and harmonization of private law by means of comparative studies which during his career have been welcomed all over the world. His understanding of the law of many jurisdictions is exceptional and his global network is impressive. He is a great European legal scholar and an ambassador for Dutch law, as witnessed by his innumerable publications.

This book has been compiled in order to appropriately admire Hondius inspiring contributions to the elaboration of European Contract Law. THe general topic of The Future of European Contract Law has been divided into five themes, many of them coinciding with the special interests of the honoured scholar himself:

  • European Contract Law: Its Possibility, Feasibility and Desirability;
  • The Common Frame of Reference and the Principles of Contract Law;
  • The Europeanization of National Contract Law;
  • The Better Law Approach in European Contract Law; and
  • Consumer Contracts in Europe.

The wealth of material in this book contains a treasure of observations and visions of where contract law in Europe currently stands, as well as on how it should develop in the future. A collection of outstanding authors have contributed to this book. ;
