The lectures presented in this volume examine the fast-growing compensation culture and the consequential pressure on courts to widen the range of situations in which individuals can claim damages from the State. Pressure on domestic legal systems has been further increased by transnational courts. Carol Harlow argues that this trend towards judicialization is undesirable, and that greater use should be made of extrajudicial remedies. She contends that the issue of compensation is too important to be left to the courts.

This book examines the topical sphere of governmental liability in damages arguing that that there has been an important shift in the traditional English law approach as illustrated in a series of recent House of Lords decisions. A detailed analysis is made of the torts applying to publicbodies, including negligence, misfeasance in public office, nuisance and breach of statutory duty, as well as the influence of European human rights law and community law, with discussion of the availability of damages under the Human Rights Act 1998 and the impact of the controversial decision ofthe European Court of Human Rights in Osman v UK and the subsequent retreat in Z v UK. The discussion of state liability is also placed within the context of the evolving attitude of the courts to public law remedies, with a detailed reconsideration of the relationship between ultra vires andliability in damages. From a comparative law perspective, it is argued that contrary to orthodox doctrinal opinion there are many similarities in the English and French law of administrative liability, with parallels in the treatment of different types of loss, causation, finding of fault, andunderlying policy concerns. The author discusses the direction in which English law might now move, as well as analysing less orthodox sources of compensation such as the practice of the ombudsmen and statutory funds including the new French medical negligence compensation scheme.

The aim of this paper is to discover the theoretical underpinnings of the case law of the European Court of Justice on Member State liability and the normative justification for such liability. The author argues that EU Member State liability presents the same formal characteristics as constitutional tort liability, and examines the theories of justice which might underlie a system of constitutional torts with a view to assessing their ability to explain the phenomenon of EU Member State liability. The author concludes that the theories of justice which provide a normatively adequate rationalization of constitutional tort liability are incapable of explaining the liability of Member States for violations of EU law. In the final part of the paper, the author suggests an explanation for the discrepancy and discusses the implications of this finding for further research on the issue of State liability in the European Union.
