Compartmentalisation and Harmonisation of Tort Law in Europe: Damage Caused by GMOs as a Test Case

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The article focuses on the classification and management of Tort Law in Europe citing the book "Damage Caused by Genetically Modified Organisms," (GMOs) edited by Bernhard Koch. It raises a question on whether GMO-caused damages are subject to generic private laws. It says that many legislatures created broader regimes that impose damage liabilities caused by GMOs in all levels. It highlights the significance of the general principles of the Tort law such as fault-based and strict liability regulations.
