Lifetime Contracts and the Draft Common Frame of Reference – Update of the Trento Agenda

The following points have been updated from the paper presented at the Trento seminar on September 25, 2009. We use the notion “lifetime contracts” as a working definition for social longterm contracts like labour, tenancy and consumer (credit) contracts. From a political perspective we should relate to “economic and social interest covered by labour, consumer and tenancy law” . This relates to the existing social associations (trade unions, consumer organisations and tenancy associations) as well as to the correponding law associations (Int.Labour Law; IACL; Deutscher Mietrechtstag etc) providing our project with the chance to political support and a link to the social movement. Since the concept of consumer law is quite unclear covering a mere market orientation in its neo-liberal information model on one hand while on the other it also covers what is called “the economic interest” of consumers which coincides with “debtor’s protection” especially present in credit law we should make it clear that our focus on consumer law is economic and social and not informational.
