Detail Summary
Start date 7 February 2013
End date 8 February 2013

The seminar will critically review the principles of international responsibility, as these have been formulated by the International Law Commission (ILC), from the perspective of shared responsibility. The seminar responds to situations where the existence, and consequences, of shared responsibility were unclear. Examples are the Al-Jedda case before the European Court for Human Rights, the Srebrenica cases in Dutch courts, and the allocation between responsibility of the EU and of member states in relation to refugees and environmental protection.

The papers will eventually be published in the first volume of what will become a book series on Shared Responsibility in International Law.
