[en] This paper explores in what ways insights from social psychology could be used to shape the interpretation of European law on unfair practices. It is argued that insights from social psychology on influencing techniques are relevant to the interpretation of the directive on unfair practices. Both conceptual and empirical insights from psychology are valuable from a legal point of view. They could respectively translate as new elements of legal tests or as presumptions.
