El "solidarismo" contractual en Francia y la "constitucionalización" de los contratos en Colombia Academic Article


  • Recently, a theoretical discourse that advocates a new reading of the general theory of contracts has taken hold. The theory maintains that in light of moral principles expressed through relatively precise "principles," judges may employ broad powers in moderating economic relations agreed upon by the parties. The article examines, from the perspective of comparative law, the French and the Colombian cases, examining the different applications of this trend in the two countries. The paper uses an eminently critical approach in seeking to reveal the practical implications behind the scholarly rhetoric.
