The Harmonisation of Private Law in Europe: Some Insights from Evolutionary Theory
16 Pages Posted: 9 Sep 2005 Last revised: 4 Jun 2009
In this article, it is investigated whether it is possible to predict the evolution of (parts of) national European private law systems toward a uniform private law. In doing so, insights of evolutionary theory, economic analysis of law and (socio)biology are taken into account in what is essentially an interdisciplinary approach toward the evolution of European private law.
