Abstract

At this time, in the international context, there is a complex network of contractual relations in the environment of engineering in international trade, which configure as a specialized part of the new Lex Mercatoria and in the field of engineering is called Ius ingenierum. All this has resulted in a transnational framework of rules that have been developed remarkably in the field of engineering through the model contracts, practices of international trade and general principles, whose aim is simply to provide specific regulations to appropriately respond to the needs of each country. The importance of this article, analyzed from the Eurotúnel case perspective, is to present the characteristics of these rules adopted in the field of engineering in international trade to promote an improve the investment politics in the infrastructure sector.

Keywords: international engineering contract, infrastructure, Ius Ingenierum, private financing, public financing, concession, Lex Mercatoria, model contracts
