International Seminar “Tort Law in Various Legal Systems: Indonesia, Hungary, and USA”
Blacks Law Dictionary give definition of tort as a private or civil wrong or injury, including action for bad faith breach of contract, for which the court will provide a remedy in the form of an action for damages. In fact, there are various terminology of tort such as onrechtmatigedaad (Dutch Law), perbuatan melawan hukum or ‘unlawful act’ (Indonesian Law), and etc. Nowadays, the law of tort significantly has different concept and theories in each legal system.
In Indonesia, the concept of unlawful act or onrechtmatigedaad is regulated in article 1365 to 1380 Indonesian Civil Code (ICC/KUH Perdata). This concept was adopted from the Dutch Civil Code since its colonialism era. Article 1365 ICC stated that every illegitimate act, which causes damage to third parties, obliges the party at fault to pay the damage caused. Article 1366 ICC also stated that every person is responsible not only for the damage caused by his act, but also for those caused by his omission to act and by his imprudence.
Since 1919, both in the Netherland and in Indonesia, unlawful act defined in broader meaning, such as accordance with one of this behavior: violate the statute, contrary to other individual right, contrary to the parties obligation, contrary to morality norms, and contrary to prudence principle or the culture of the society. Many Indonesian Private Law scholars asked to reform the concept of tort to give certainty measures defining tort. This reaction becomes relevant if we compare with the Ducth Civil Law, now revised the concept of tort in separate book in their Civil Code. The United States of America also has different concept on tort law. This law has its origin in the British common law system. Most of United States tort law was developed by court decisions. Tort law in the United States exists to redress damages caused an individual by the conduct of another that falls below a standard of care defined by the civil courts.
