In February 1997, a large symposium was convened in The Hague _______ the further harmonization of European private and commercial law. More than 200 jurists ____________ for this particular purpose, most of them academics, judges, practitioners and civil servants from EU Member States, but also representatives from the EU Parliament and Commission, as well as observers from countries currently _________ for EU membership.
The conference title was "Towards a European Civil Code". The ultimate goal for the pro-Code group in Europe is the enactment of comprehensive legislation, _________________ upon all European Union Members and comprising virtually all aspects of private and commercial law.
Though the idea of drafting and implementing such a codex is not really new, it might seem both unworkable and unattainable, at least in the foreseeable future. Then again, as certain influential delegates emphasized in the Hague, the Code project has already gained the support of the ever-more-powerful European Parliament, and if a Civil Code were to be ____________ as a Directive or Regulation, it would not even require a unanimous vote! For these and other reasons, even the most skeptical among the symposium participants ________ compelled to take a second, more serious look.
