Personality Rights in European Tort Law Hardback
Part of the The Common Core of European Private Law series
This volume provides a comprehensive analysis of civil liability for invasion of personality interests in Europe.
It is the final product of the collaboration of twenty-seven scholars and includes case studies of fourteen European jurisdictions, as well as an introductory chapter written from a US perspective.
The case studies focus in particular on the legal protection of honour and reputation, privacy, self-determination and image.
This volume aims to detect hidden similarities (the 'common core') in the actual legal treatment accorded by different European countries to personal interests which in some of these countries qualify as 'personality rights', and also to detect hidden disparities in the 'law in action' of countries whose 'law in the books' seem to protect one and the same personality interest in the same way.
