Summary This book covers both European Community law and Dutch environmental liability law as applicable in international cases. It contains an in-depth analysis of the Brussels Convention on Jurisdiction and Enforcement of Judgments from the point of view of environmental protection. In addition, the Community law doctrine of indirect effect, which is of great practical importance, is critically examined. Dutch environmental tort law, which is likely to influence future EC law in this field, is discussed in detail. This book is unique in that it, for the first time, makes a developed body of case law accessible to non-Dutch lawyers. This study will be of interest not only to environmental lawyers, but to all those engaged in international litigation, comparative tort law, and in EC law in general.
