Fundamental, cutting-edge research is conducted on the intersection of tort law, victims’ needs, theory, and empiricism. Research has shown a tension exists between tort law and societal needs. Victims desire information about what happened, want to prevent future wrongdoing, seek acknowledgement of the harm, or wish that wrongdoers apologize for their actions. In contrast, tort law mainly offers monetary compensation. This research cluster seeks to whether, why, and how tort law can be made more responsive to those needs. It does so by combining a theoretical perspective and an empirical perspective, with the aim of providing innovative insights to solve existing theoretical and societal problems.
