The University of Copenhagen, Center for Commercial Law, is proud to present the papers in this volume which 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 in 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 the 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.
