This article provides a short introduction to the present special issue of the Journal of European Tort Law, which critically investigates the cultures of tort law in four selected national or regional contexts in Europe: England, France, Germany and Scandinavia. It explains what is meant by the idea of a culture of tort law, summarises the articles that follow, and ends with some concluding reflections from a comparative perspective.
