Chapter Summary

State practice shows that in the context of unification and integration of States, the principle of succession to international responsibility finds application. The examination of State practice and case law in the context of Newly Independent States shows a great variety of solutions supporting both the principles of succession and non-succession to international responsibility. Several specific circumstances have been identified under which State practice and case law (as well as doctrine) support the application of the principle of succession, whereby the successor State takes over the obligations arising from internationally wrongful acts committed by the predecessor State before the date of succession. State practice and case law in the context of State succession to the right to reparation is much more straightforward than the issue of succession to the obligation to repair.
