About this book


A harmonisation of European law presupposes sound mutual knowledge of the jurisdictions involved in the harmonisation process. However, partly due to language problems it is not always easy to obtain information about all these jurisdictions, especially as far as new developments are concerned. Against this background, the European Centre of Tort and Insurance Law and the - stitute for European Tort Law decided to publish a Yearbook on European Tort Law containing reports on the most interesting new developments in the field of tort law in different European countries. The eighth Yearbook on European Tort Law includes reports on most EU Member States, including the new Member States Bulgaria and Romania. Contributions from Switzerland and Norway as well as an overview of the developments in the field of EC law are also included. Furthermore, the Ye- book includes a comparative overview and several essays on key issues of tort law, most of which focus on questions of burden of proof. These essays, as well as the most important results of the country reports and the compa- tive overview, were presented and discussed at the 8th Annual Conference on European Tort Law in Vienna from 16 to 18 April 2009. The 9th Annual Conference on European Tort Law will again take place in Vienna from 8 to 10 April 2010.
