Economic losses caused by the admixture of genetically modified crops with conventional or organic crops are governed by a variety of regimes throughout Europe at present, and redress is not equally available. Tort law rules alone differ quite significantly, not least because some countries have introduced specific liability regimes. Others have already (or are considering to) set up compensation funds.

This book presents how European jurisdictions respond to such losses, and what alternatives there are in a comparative perspective. Apart from tort law, insurance models and other compensation schemes are considered, with a special focus on cross-border aspects. Experts from almost all European countries address the topic from the perspective of their respective jurisdictions. Further contributions include an economic analysis of possible solutions as well as a survey of insurance problems. The book is concluded by a comprehensive comparative overview and an assessment of legal policy issues.
