The U.N. Convention for The International Sale of Goods:

Current Status and Perspectives

Prof. Dr. Jörg Fedtke is hosting Prof. Michael Bridge, LSE and Prof. Dr. Ulrich Magnus, Hamburg.

The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) of 1980 enjoys continued international support and – despite the absence of important economies such as the United Kingdom, India or South Africa – is often considered the most successful example of legal cooperation on a global scale. Interesting questions concerning the application of the Convention in daily commercial practice and its future perspectives as a facilitator for the international trade in goods remain, however, and will be discussed in an open Q+A format during this event. These include, inter alia, the use of the CISG in the United States, the influence of China as a global (legal) player, judicial cooperation absent a transnational system of adjudicating disputes, and – more generally – the interaction between common law and civilian systems within the ambit of a global legal regime.
