This is a pre-edited draft of the Turkish report to the European Tort Law Yearbook 2013. It critically evaluates recent developments in Turkish tort law. In the first Part, I begin by presenting the major innovations set forth by the new Turkish Code of Obligations. I then focus on some recent developments in Turkish environmental and competition law. The liability of search engines is another topic I explore in the first Part. The second Part discusses recent developments in case law involving defamation by the press, statute of limitations, and personal injury.
Keywords: Turkish law, tort law, liability, environmental law, competition law, defamation, statute of limitation, personal injury
