Principles of European Tort Law 4 results

The series Principles of European Tort Law of the European Group on Tort Law contributes to the advancement and harmonisation of tort law in Europe.

The Group’s members are leading academics from civil law, common law and mixed legal systems who believe that the advancement of European tort law is of major relevance to European citizens and the European economy. Publications in this series, edited by different members of the Group, illuminate and analyse the existing legal position on fundamental and topical issues of tort law on a national and European level, taking into account relevant theoretical and inter-disciplinary perspectives. A key feature of each publication will be the analysis of hypothetical cases, showing clearly in practical terms where jurisdictions diverge or converge.

It is envisaged that the series will culminate in the publication of an updated, revised and expanded version of the Principles of European Tort Law, building on the research and analysis contained in the earlier volumes of the series.

  3. The Liability of Public Authorities in Comparative Perspective

    The Liability of Public Authorities in Comparative Perspective

    Book | 1st edition 2016 | United Kingdom | Ken Oliphant
    In recent decades, the liability of public authorities has been one of the main areas of development in tort law in Europe, with major reforms implemented or considered at a national level, and a steady stream of major court decisions. During the same period, ‘Member State liability’ has also been recognised in the law of the EU, and the interplay of principles of national and EU law – and additionally the ‘just satisfaction’ jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights – evidently warrants close attention.
