This article presents the first project that tries to compile a coherent set of principles underlying the tort laws in Europe. The European Group on Tort Law has embarked on this endeavour in 1992 and published the completed ,,Principles of European Tort Law" (PETL) in 2005. These Principles are not meant to be a draft code, even though they may show the potential for harmonization of the laws of delict in Europe, at whatever level this may happen, if at all. As a minimum, they can serve as a roster for comparing national systems and for drafting tort rules, whether at the national or international level, with an eye to consistency within Europe. The work on the Principles, the methodology and other fundamental aspects are described in an overview. Key substantive examples shall give a first insight into the Principles.
