Chapter 10 examines the English law that would apply to the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments given on tortious claims arising out of the external exercise of British executive authority. It shows that some tortious claims arising out of the external exercise of British executive authority fall within a territorial tort exception to state immunity. It also deals with the recognition of judgments given against the UK by the courts of another contracting state to the European Convention. The chapter argues that tortious claims arising out of the external exercise of British executive authority have a prominent public law side that inevitably influences the resolution of private international law issues that arise. It examines the treatment of foreign judgments given against the UK by the courts of the other contracting states to the European Convention on State Immunity and the courts of other states.
