This concluding chapter argues that non-legislative codifications, such as the American Restatements, the Principles of European Contract Law, and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, are no modern peculiarity. On the contrary: European private law has long been developed on the basis of texts that were largely independent of any political domination. This becomes apparent from the transjurisdictional character of most non-legislative codifications. Thus, private law has mostly been, and still is to a large degree, autonomous from the states' political system.
