Summary/Abstract: The project proposed in 2001 by the European Commission, regarding a possible conceptualization of European contract law has determined the emergence of a continental academic debate, on the theoretical and practical outcomes of such a codification project, encompassing a significant part of European private law. The scientific research structures thus created has proven to be extremely productive, by publishing a number of seven complex works, encompassed in a very concrete codification proposal. Next to the already existing “Principles of European Contract Law”, these can be considered to be a real and cohesive theoretical corpus that sooner or later will inevitably become a European Civil Code. This paper proposes a brief analysis of the implications of a “Project on a Common Frame of Reference” regarding private law and its frame of existence, enouncing several possible hypothesis on its emergence and evolution, given the present political and legal European context.
