EuCML - Journal of European Consumer and Market Law
However, there are new challenges ahead. What will be the future of private law harmonisation after the European Commission has deleted the proposal of a Common European Sales Law from its priority list? Could the Commission’s Digital Single Market Strategy be a starting point for a new regulatory architecture? How will online dispute resolution change the map of European consumer law?
These and other questions concerning the future of consumer law and market regulation need a European platform for analysis and debate. The "Journal of European Consumer and Market Law" aims at providing such a platform and thus fills a gap in existing publications in the field of European consumer law. We see "EuCML" as a forum for the community of consumer and market lawyers to get information about current affairs, to discuss issues of a European dimension and to read about current legal developments in other countries.
"EuCML" takes a fresh perspective at consumer law that goes beyond the traditional understanding of consumer law as consumer protection law and includes the perspective of doing business in the B2C market. Thus we interpret our topic always in the context of market order and market integration in Europe. In addition, we understand the term consumer in a broad sense encompassing, for instance, users, passengers and insurance policy holders.
