Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the 1994 Russian Civil Code and its meaning for comparative legal studies. It also presents a meaning for the harmonization and unification of civil law. Harmonization and unification of laws is on the agenda both in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and in the European Union (EU). The European Parliament considers the harmonization of the law of member states in the area of private law to be one effective way of meeting the European Communitys legal requirements. The chapter outlines the two unsuccessful attempts to harmonize and unify laws, and also gives three examples of successful unification of the law.

Keywords: Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS); comparative legal studies; European Union (EU); Russian civil code
