Chapter Summary

The internationalisation of criminal law has been one of the most prominent developments in international law in the past ten to fifteen years. The 'project of international criminal law' has mobilised international public opinion to an unprecedented extent, leading to intensive normative and institutional development related to the investigation and prosecution of the most serious international crimes. These changes which have taken place in a remarkably short time, have given rise to analyses identifying an increasing 'criminalisation' of international law. International responsibility of states for private violence, even if not codified before the ILC Articles on State Responsibility of 2001, is in no way an uncharted territory. Although it is not obvious from the ILC Articles on State Responsibility in their streamlined form, there is, in addition to attribution, another equally important basis for the international responsibility of states related to the acts of individuals.
