The Correlation of the Principles of UNIDROIT and the Vienna Convention on International Purchase and Sale of Commodities

In the contemporary science of international private law there are the legislative (conventional) and non-legislative (non-conventional) methods for the unification of the law of international commercial agreements. The most outstanding example of legal unification of international trade is the UN Convention on agreements on international sale and purchase of commodities of 1980 (Vienna Convention). The Convention has much in common with the Principles of UNIDROIT, at least in the sense of a regulating instrument, which necessitated a correlation of these two documents. Casting a brief look at the contents of both documents, the author carries out a comparative analysis.
