    Abstract

    The paper discusses the use of comparative law methods in the context of EU law on consumer vulnerability. It proposes a culturally informed comparative method that takes into account multi-layered national narratives that influences the interpretation and application of the EU concept at national level. This should help us to develop a sophisticated understanding of the concept and political, cultural and legal dynamics within the harmonisation process.
