Of the policy options mentioned in the Commission’s Green Paper on policy options for a European contract law (COM(2010)348 final), the introduction of an Optional Instrument on European Contract Law (OI) is to be preferred from an economic, political and legal perspective. Initially, the OI should only deal with topics of general contract law, but rules on other topics should gradually be added to the OI, also from property law. As a consequence of these additions, however, the disadvantages of the instrument will make themselves felt more and more, and in the long run another instrument for harmonisation/unification will have to be found.
