With this issue, the European Review of Contract Law, initiates a new type of publication, particularly inspired by the paradigm of contracts and contract law where “negotiation” and a “discursive style” have a particular meaning and place already. The thrust is to bring together papers whose authors deal with one common topic, but do so in a kind of “disputatio”, with diverging opinions. It can also be that the very frameworks and sets of theories strongly diverge: for instance, one intervention may be closer to law & economics discussions, another being based rather on philosophical or on political theory considerations. Indeed, plural disciplinary approaches are to be encouraged, with the idea that this may be a rich source of productive disagreement over a given issue. The contributions are designed to allow discussants to react to an initial opinion. This format does not aim primarily at the exploration of different facets of one larger topic (as do special issues), but rather at the controversial, intensive exploration of one and the same question.
