In the context of the current debate on the desirability and mode of formation of European private law (EPL) engaging a wide number of scholars and institutions, this book considers one fundamental question addressing its descriptive and normative dimension: does and should EPL pursue regulatory objectives beyond market integration? The editors of this book hold the view that because national categories are of little help to grasp the characteristics of a multi-level regulatory system, it is necessary to link three perspectives: private law, regulation and conflict of laws. This book explores this interaction in four distinct fields: products liability, environmental protection, public utilities and e-commerce. The results show that EPL is highly regulatory and that the implications of this change have not been adequately considered both by institutions and by scholars.
