Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the relationship between &t;risk&t; and &t;harm&t; and the parallel relationship between &t;prevention&t; and &t;liability&t; in the framework of a legal regime regulating a hazardous activity. Risk is, therefore, a concept that must be progressively incorporated into modern legal systems. Some activities produce transboundary pollution or other effects that accumulate over time and end up exhausting natures capacity of absorption. Prevention and liability certainly have a close relationship and that relationship is based on the risk inherent to hazardous activities-making prevention all the more necessary.
