The goal of the paper is to present aims, methods and features of the research carried out by the ‘The Common Core of European Private Law” project as far as tort law is concerned.
Accordingly, the paper first depicts the immediate and the long-term goals of the ‘Common Core’ endeavor, as well as its methodology and organization. The article then illustrates the tort law volumes that have been so far published within the project, and analyzes the distinctive tenets of the Common Core approach as applied to tort law issues. Finally, the paper puts forward some remarks about the scenarios that the Common Core approach is bound to open within the field of tort law, in the short as well as in the long run.
