This chapter examines the different approaches taken by the legal systems of EU Member States to the description and methods of analysis of causation in their tort law. The different descriptions and methods of analysis of legal causation that have emerged in theory and practice are thoroughly examined. The chapter also explores how some key EU jurisdictions have dealt so far with the issue of causation, focusing initially on general tort law and subsequently providing illustrations from competition law cases.
