Abstract

This paper discusses the aim, method, and organization of ‘The Common Core of European Private Law’ project, a scholarly initiative launched by the authors in 1994, and that at the moment this paper was written involved one hundred (and now more than two hundred) scholars, mostly from Europe and the United States.

Part I describes both the immediate and the long-term goals of the Project. Part II discusses the methodological evolution that has taken place from Schlesinger's Cornell Project to the Common Core work, and tackles the main differences between the Common Core approach and other "integrative" projects taking place in Europe. Part III deals with the Project's framework, structure, and organization.

Keywords: Comparative law, Legal harmonization, Europanization, Common Core
