From comparative perspective we will analyse the situation in Germany, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands and Estonia as well. How the liability of civil servants is organized in these countries; are the public authorities and governments equated with the private parties or do the special rules or structures provide the basis for the liability system (tort and criminal)?
