Chapter Summary

This chapter examines conventions on liability and compensation. Bearing in mind that the only clear-cut cases of liability in international law can only be found in the conventional field, an exploration therein seems necessary. In a civil liability regime primary liability falls on private persons or entities acting within the framework of the State of origins domestic law. The chapter summarizes salient specific features of civil liability regimes considering that such regimes contain the international mechanisms currently used for the regulation of transboundary risk. It identifies common criteria applicable to risk regulation in different international regimes.
