The debate about the use of genetically modified organisms is fuelled by the fear of potential hazards of GM farming. Classic tort law already offers remedies should such risks materialize. In some countries, this is enhanced or replaced by alternative redress schemes. This volume compares more than twenty jurisdictions in this respect, provides special analyses from an economic and insurance perspective and also addresses cross-border problems and international law.
