The Law of Environmental Damage: Liability and Reparation
Kluwer Law International, 1999 - 681 pages
From its starting point within international law, throughout its progression from regional national law, The Law of Environmental Damage combines the disciplines of environmental law, liability law and insurance in its analysis of the development of reparative environmental law. In the model adopted, three generations of reparative schemes are identified based on civil liability or administrative liability or self-taken measures from the area of insurance. The results of the study are evaluated within the framework of a theory of environmental efficiency; among other factors, the reparative effect of liability rules is discussed.
