Much has been written, from a comparative perspective, on the different types of contractual obligations and the remedies to which the party aggrieved by a breach is entitled to pursue. But few comparative scholars have ventured to discuss the different approaches legal systems take to the actual enforcement of contractual promises. Gathering jurists from different legal systems, the IACL Congress in Montevideo gave us the opportunity to discuss, as reflected in this contribution, how courts in different parts of the world provide actual relief to the obligee in cases of nonperformance, defective performance, or delayed performance of contractual obligations.
