Show Summary Details


This chapter concludes with discussion of the three main objectives of the monograph, as identified in the Introduction. They were to assess the extent to which the performance interest is protected in England, to explain the reasons why this level of protection is provided, and to consider how English law might evolve to enhance the protection of the performance interest in the future. The conclusion of the book is that the commitment in English law to protecting performance is equivocal and that the divide between England and France in this area is significant. The reasons behind the remedial solutions for breach of contract in England and the differences between English and French law are multiple (a complex array of historical, technical, cultural, and philosophical factors). The chapter also discusses the remedial solutions explored in the book to reinforce the protection of the performance interest.
