The aim of the article is to provide an overview of the projects regarding harmonization of European tort laws, and the costs and benefits associated with them. To this purpose, the entry critically examines the arguments for and against tort law harmonization in Europe, and investigates the assumptions and approaches underlying the many institutional and academic initiatives in the field. The article tentatively draws some conclusions about the short and long-term prospects of European tort law harmonization.
