Reifner/Nogler Paper for the EuSoCo Trento Meeting

Lifetime Contracts and the Draft Common Frame of Reference

– A preliminary draft agenda for the Trento Meeting of the EuSoCo Project (July 10, 2009)

(For personal use only – no language check applied)

Udo Reifner/Luca Nogler


The following points are made in order to structure and prepare the discussion 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. We are aware of the fact that other socially meaningful longterm contracts do exist in the area of goods of first necessity, associations, company law but we assume that the idea of a life time contract based on the legal idea of renting (location conduction) has nowhere emerged so clearly as in these three areas. The points made here are very preliminary and incentives for work and partition of labour. We would like to get as much material and hints as to the national and international discussions in this area as possible in order to be able to design a research project who after the Trento meeting has to be proposed in the FP 7 programme of DG research. iff will overtake the technical part. For this we also need ideas of the participants what resources they would like to have from the project, who else should get involved. The project will be conducted in three languages: German, French and English. Papers can also be presented in the mother tongue of the author if a summary or explanation in one of these languages is available. In our discussions we will provide short translations but make no restriction to the use of either of these languages. (more…)

Vers un principe de défaveur ?

Quand le droit européen affronte la tradition des droits nationaux[1]

Emmanuel Dockès

Sous des noms divers, une idée assez simple semble toujours actuelle au sein du droit du travail de nombreux droits des Etats membres de l’Union européenne. En droit français, on parle de principe de faveur, en droit allemand de Günstigkeitsprinzip, en Italie de derogabilità in melius, … Une étude comparatiste plus poussée serait nécessaire por mieux montrer la force, mais aussi les limites de cette idée commune. D’autant que cette idée semble désormais menacée en droit européen. (more…)
