This paper discusses the interpretation of the content of contracts in European contract law, paying particular attention to the relevant provisions of the Draft Common Frame of Reference on this topic. It addresses three main aspects of interpretation of contracts: first, the theoretical background; second, the rules of interpretation; and third, the manner in which lacunae in the contract are dealt with.
