About the Authors
  • 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 US. 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.

    • Written by experts of international, EU and national tort law and gives the reader the full picture of the potential liability exposure of the affected industry
    • Gives a comprehensive analysis of the civil liability situation in case of a terrorist attack
    • Critical analysis of the efficiency of the existing liability laws from a law and economics perspective including insurance aspects
