              This groundbreaking volume of The ANNALS provides the first overview of class action laws and related mechanisms around the world. It features 30 country reports by leading scholars, describing the adoption, characteristics and consequences to date of class action and non-class g...roup litigation procedures ranging across North and Latin America, Australia, Asia and Europe. In December 2007, Stanford Law School and the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal Studies organized an international conference that studied the global spread of class actions and group litigation procedures. Scholars, jurists, and practitioners from around the world gathered to discuss and debate the use of group litigation procedures and initiate a research project on the evolution of class actions and aggregate litigation worldwide. This volume of The ANNALS is one result of that conference. Students, scholars and policymakers will find this anthology of reports to be an essential overview, providing a solid understanding of the effects of class actions around the globe.

              Delivering Collective Redress: New Technologies

              This book charts the transformative shifts in techniques that seek to deliver collective redress, especially for mass consumer claims in Europe. It shows how traditional approaches of (class) litigation (old technology) have been eclipsed by the new technology of regulatory redre...ss techniques and consumer ombudsmen. It describes a series of these techniques, each illustrated by leading examples taken from a 2016 pan-EU research project. It then undertakes a comparative evaluation of each technique against key criteria, such as effective outcomes, speed, and cost. The book reveals major transformations in European legal systems, and the overriding need to view legal systems from fresh viewpoints, and to devise a new integrated model.

              Redress Schemes for Personal Injuries
               

              Redress Schemes for Personal Injuries (Hardback)

              By Macleod, Sonia; Hodges, Christopher

              • RRP: $198.00

              This ground-breaking book takes a fresh look at potential non-litigation solutions to providing personal injury compensation. It is the first systematic comparative study of such a large number, over forty, personal injury compensation schemes. It covers the drivers for their cre...ation, the frameworks under which they operate, the criteria and thresholds used, the compensation offered, the claims process, statistics on throughput and costs, and analysis of financial costings. It also considers and compares the successes and failings of these schemes. Many different types of redress provider are studied. These include the comprehensive no-blame coverage offered by the New Zealand Accident Compensation Corporation; the widely used Patient, Pharmaceutical, Motor Accident and Workers Compensation Insurance systems of the Nordic states; the far smaller issue-focused schemes like the UK Thalidomide and vCJD Trusts; vaccine damage schemes that exist in many countries; motor vehicle schemes from USA. Conclusions are drawn about the functions, essential requirements, architecture, scope, operation and performance of personal injury compensation systems. The relationships between such schemes, the courts and regulators are also discussed, and both calls and need for reforms are noted. Noting the wide calls for reform of NHS medical negligence litigation within the UK, and its replacement with a no blame approach, the authors' findings outline options for future policy in this area. This major contribution builds on general shifts from courts to ADR, and from blame to no blame in regulation, and is a work that has the potential to have a major impact on the field of personal injury redress. With contributions by Claire Bright, Raymond Byrne, Naomi Creutzfeldt, Matti Urho, Mary Walker and Herbert Woopen.

              Regulatory Delivery

              Regulatory Delivery (Hardback)

              This ground-breaking book addresses the challenge of regulatory delivery, defined as the way that regulatory agencies operate in practice to achieve the intended outcomes of regulation. Regulatory reform is moving beyond the design of regulation, to address what good regulatory d...elivery looks like. The challenge in practice is to operate a regulatory regime that is both appropriate and effective. Questions of how regulations are received and applied by those whose behaviour they seek to control, and the way they are enforced, are vital in securing desired regulatory outcomes. This book, written by and for practitioners of regulatory delivery, explains the Regulatory Delivery Model, developed by Graham Russell and his team at the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. The model sets out a framework to steer improvements to regulatory delivery comprising three pre-requisites for regulatory agencies to be able to operate effectively (governance, accountability and culture) and three practices for regulatory agencies to be able to deliver societal outcomes (risk-based prioritisation, intervention choices and outcome measurement). These elements are explored by an international group of experts in regulatory delivery reform, with case studies from around the world.
