Chapter 5: Tort and crime

Matthew Dyson


Tort and crime are areas of profound importance in daily life, representing some of the most obvious engagements with societal rules enforced in courts that the average person comes across. Further, analysing the relationship between tort and crime provides excellent places to examine the weave of the law: the moral, regulatory, philosophical, political, practical and societal threads, as well as how these feed back to the way the problem is conceived. This chapter sets out how the distinction and relationship between tort and crime can be examined comparatively. To do so it gives a framework to prime investigations and to facilitate comparison, building on three interfaces of tort and crime: where, how and why they connect.
