Natural Hazards in the Mountain Environment: Risk Management and Responsibility

The desire to enjoy nature and the enthusiasm for practicing a wide variety of activities away from the stress of everyday life is bringing a growing amount of people closer to the mountain. Even though this trend is undoubtedly to welcome, it also leads to an increase in alpine accidents. These are usually followed by complex criminal liability issues, due to both the unpredictability of nature, and the tendency of people to disregard own mistakes and to blame other people. 

The research project “Natural Hazards in the Mountain Environment: Risk Management and Responsibility” is addressing these issues from a legal point of view and aims to bring nature and law closer to each other through interdisciplinary and empirical research.  [more]
