9.2. Non-contractual Liability of the State

Track: 9. Private Law


The Government currently takes part almost in all areas of public relations. At that, the authoritative nature of the government’s activities provides for the opportunity to interfere with rights and freedoms of citizens and entities within the limits established by law, with regard of acknowledged principles and international law regulations. However, such limits are not always evident. In foreign countries, there are different approaches to grounds and procedures for indemnification for damages caused by the government. The issues proposed for the panel discussion are related to recovery of damages incurred in the course of governmental power exercise.
