Compensating Catastrophe Victims: A Comparative Law and Economics Approach

Front Cover
Kluwer Law International B.V., Jan 1, 2010 - Law - 612 pages
This book shows that amelioration of the current compensation solutions for disaster victims is indeed a possibility. In a heated yet often poorly informed debate, it offers clarity and insights regarding the financial compensation for victims of catastrophes which, in addition to raising academic interest, are certain to help build a framework for future policymakers and lawmakers faced with shaping compensation programmes for catastrophe victims.
