This volume examines the evolution of Central European product liability regimes, with particular reference to the effect of the implementation of the Product Liability Directive in the context of the recent enlargement of the EU.

Using Product Liability Law, the study offers a valuable insight into the necessary features and requirements of the harmonisation of laws between the EU and Post-socialist Europe. This complex undertaking is achieved by use of comparative law methodology concerned with convergence of laws, international movements of law and the changes these necessitate. The volume further provides a comparison of how the law has evolved in Socialist states and compares it to developments taking place in the West.

Predominantly legal in scope, the study also takes account of the importance of extralegal elements in law reform. As such, it will be a valuable resource for those interested in European Law as well as those working in the area of Consumer and Product Liability law.
