Legal Adviser in the Council of State (Spain) since 1991, and having served as Undersecretary of Defense for the Spanish government for four years, Víctor Torre de Silva is an expert in administrative law, on which his doctoral thesis was written. In his own words: “The international security arena has changed in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The way in which state security forces act has also changed. They can occasionally produce damages to firms and individuals. That is why I am analysing the liability of the government for these damages”. Professor Torre de Silva is also interested in contracts and property law as well as in negotiation techniques.
After gaining a Law Degree from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, with national awards, Professor Torre de Silva obtained a Master of Laws at Harvard University Law School and a Ph.D in Law with honors at the Universidad Complutense again, which was awarded a University prize. He has also served as director in the board of several firms, including the Spanish railways company, and the Spanish ports authority, and has been chief of staff of the Speaker of Spanish Parliament (Congreso de los Diputados). He received the Isabel la Católica Great Cross by royal decree in May 2004.
In the course of his career he has had numerous articles and research works published in specialised journals, including Revista de Administración Pública (Spanish public sector journal) and Revista Española de Derecho Administrativo (Spanish administrative law journal). Professor Torre de Silva’s research projects include a thesis undertaken at Harvard on regulatory agencies. He also collaborates with some media.
