Pandemics - Liability and Insurance

The 19th Joint Seminar of the International Association for the Study of Insurance Economics (The Geneva Association) and the European Association of Law and Economics (EALE) will be hosted by the European Centre of Tort and Insurance Law (ECTIL) in cooperation with the Institute for European Tort Law (ETL) in Vienna from 23‑24 June 2022. Papers presented at the Seminar will discuss liability implications of pandemics for the (re-)insurance industry, a highly relevant topic in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic and possibly again in the future. A selection of the papers from the seminar will be invited for publication in a special issue of The Geneva Papers on Risk and Insurance — Issues and Practice, which are published with Palgrave.

The project is led by Christophe Courbage (Geneva School of Business Administration), Michael Faure (METRO/Erasmus University Rotterdam), and Ernst Karner (ECTIL/ETL/University of Vienna).
