History of formation and development of liability for damage caused by sources of extreme danger in Vietnam: Issues of legal influence
This article analyzes the influence of Western legal ideology and socialist law on the formation and development of liability for damage caused by sources of extreme danger in the law of Vietnam. The authors have examined all the important legal documents that are associated with the issue of liability for damage caused by sources of extreme danger. The research materials are also based on the works of Western and Eastern authors writing about Vietnam during this historical period. To achieve this goal, the authors used the following methods: comparative legal, analysis, synthesis and historical method. The conclusions of the study showed that: under the influence of French legal ideology during the period of French colonization, liability for harm caused by sources of increased danger first appeared in the law of Vietnam. For the first time in Vietnamese civil law, the term "source of extreme danger" is used with the adoption of the Circular of the Supreme People's Court No. 173-TANDTS dated March 23, 1972. From 1986 to the present, this liability has been created and developed under the influence of old Soviet law and current Russian law.
