Civil Liability in Europe for Terrorism-Related Risk Paperback / softback
Part of the Cambridge Studies in International and Comparative Law series
Today terrorism has become a world-wide phenomenon which does not stop at the European borders.
Following the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre and terrorist attacks in Paris, Madrid and London, concerns have arisen in Europe about potential liability exposure for terrorism-related damage.
This book tackles the problem of civil liability for damage caused by terrorist acts from several angles.
The authors expertly deliver a comprehensive analysis of terrorism-related risk under international and EU law, and the national tort law systems of seven representative EU Member States.
They also provide a comparison of the situation in Europe to the liability environment in the United States.
Risk mitigation strategies are considered and critically assessed, as are alternative systems for redressing terrorism-related risks.
The book concludes with a reflection on the analysis and presents possible strategies for future regulation by the European lawmakers.
