Extraterritoriality and collective redress
This book examines the phenomenon of mass litigation from a comparative and private international law perspective by looking at the extraterritorial impact of collective redress litigation. The contributions explore the way in which collective redress issues span frontiers, and thereby engage with complex transnational issues.
The origin of this book was in a series of projects on collective redress undertaken by Dr Duncan Fairgrieve and Dr Eva Lein at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law in London.
The objective of this work was to examine and understand the collective redress phenomenon from a transversal perspective, taking account of how mass litigation is understood in comparative and international law.
