The tragic events of September 11th, 2001, have stirred international debate on how to cope with losses that terrorist acts inflict upon individuals and businesses. While tort law offers several possible responses to this question, insurers, funds and ad hoc legislation often step in as well. This volume brings together renowned tort law experts from Austria, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, who examine compensation for victims of terrorism in their respective jurisdictions. Contributions from the U.S. also address procedural problems of mass tort litigation and present the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. Further contributions include a survey of liability insurance issues as well as an economic analysis of possible solutions. The book is concluded by a comparative analysis and an assessment of legal policy issues.
