The CISG Convention and Domestic Contract Law: Harmony, Cross-Inspiration, or Discord?

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportBogForskningfagfællebedømt

The papers prepared by outstanding Nordic and International scholars in this volume cast new light on the interrelationship between key features of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and domestic sales and contract law.

The Nordic region has a special interest is this project, as 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the ratification of the CISG in most of the Nordic Countries. But the interaction between the CISG and domestic law is not merely a Scandinavian concern. CISG Article 7 expressly requires that in the interpretation of CISG, “regard is to be had to its international character and to the need to promote uniformity in its application”. With particular emphasis on issues relating to Contract Formation, Conformity of Goods and Hardship, the authors discuss how CISG rules and principles impact on or are influenced by domestic sales and contract law, both in the Nordic region and elsewhere.
