Statutory obligations to take out liability insurance are, in practice, the most important means to ensure the compensability of damage arising from dangerous activities.
The conference presents the results of an extensive comparative study of the European Centre of Tort and Insurance Law (ECTIL) and the Institute for European Tort Law of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the University of Graz (ETL) on various European legal systems while providing the opportunity to discuss them. A view is equally taken on EU Law, the principles of Constitutional Law, the Economic Analysis of Law, the Principles of European Insurance Contract Law (PEICL) as well as the practice of Insurers and Reinsurers on compulsory liability insurance. Conclusions will complete the programme.
The conference will be held in English and will likewise address legal academia as well as experts involved in the practice of liability insurance.
The conference is organised by ECTIL and ETL, together with the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU). It takes place in Vienna (in the premises of the Vienna University of Economics and Business, WU) on Monday, 13 June 2016.
