In recent years there has been a growing interest in the legal aspects of mass torts in Europe. Academics, legislatures, courts and policymakers throughout the whole of Europe have been struggling with the challenges that such 'massification‘ of private law relationships poses both in and outside of tort law. The subject moves between the law of civil procedure, substantive tort law, access to justice debates and regulatory frameworks for mass disputes. This volume offers both a kaleidoscopic review of real-life key cases of mass tort and an in-depth reflection on the broader implications of mass tort in Europe. Thus the challenges posed by mass torts are explored, mapped and analysed.
