Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Collective Responsibility and Accountability Under International Law, contains table of contents, acknowledgements, foreword, and introduction. The book's nicely balanced two parts involve different aspects of the question of enforcement during armed conflict. The first part discusses three particular types of wartime measures based on collective responsibility: imposition of collective punishments, taking of hostages, and belligerent reprisals. The second part considers the principles of attribution under which an actor may be held responsible under international criminal law for the criminal acts of others.

Keywords: accountability; collective responsibility; International Criminal Law; International Humanitarian Law
