The odds of survival

In June 2017, an appellate court in The Hague issued a verdict related to the genocide in Srebrenica. More specifically, the court ruled on the responsibility of the Dutch state for damages suffered by relatives of the genocide victims. It was a case that importantly revolved around tort law. This application of tort law is not necessarily surprising for lawyers. Yet for non-lawyers, it must be somewhat odd to read how legal experts bicker about questions of causation to determine whether or not some party is – partly – responsible for damages in a case as dramatic as the Srebrenica genocide. This video offers some explanation. But it does more. It also aims to raise questions for legal scholars about the assessment of the odds of some – unique – event happening. And finally, it’s a creative and perhaps effective way of sharing insights on legal cases. Check out the video to find out more.
