Material compensation of moral damage is one of the most difficult controversies in the theory of law and jurisprudence. Because of lack of legislative backgrounds, the courts often face many problems while determining the amount of compensation. Such problem is more evident and complex especially in developing countries, where jurisprudence in this matter is not developed yet. This book provides legal framework of the issue of material compensation of moral damage, the definition of moral damage, the ground and way of calculation of compensation and some other compensation-related issues. The issues discussed in this book are based on comparative analysis of different legal doctrines and legislations, as well as based on analysis of case law of European Court oh Human Rights and Inter-American Court of Human Rights. The analysis and conclusions of this book may be useful for law researchers, professionals in law as well as for anyone else, who needs to get material compensation for moral damage caused to him.
