This book is the first of a two volume treatise on the law of non-contractual obligations. The result of an attempt to discover the common elements of the law of torts of all the member states of the European Union, it is founded on the belief that the approximation of European laws should not be left to the directives and regulations of Brussels alone. The book analyses the relevant court rulings and academic writings of all the jurisdictions of the European Union to distil a European common law of torts. The material covered in volume one includes: the areas of application of tort law and its boundaries with contract, property, criminal and constitutional law; the elements of liability under the general clauses of the European civil codes and the more specific torts of the common law. Further topics include: strict liability, liability for other persons, animals and premises; multiple tortfeasors; and an account of European Union and Council of Europe attempts to harmonise the less coherent areas of tort law.

Keywords: law; non-contractual obligations; torts; European Union; liability; tortfeasors; Council of Europe
