Chapter Summary

In this chapter the author addresses one aspect of the complex relationship between state responsibility and individual responsibility. In particular, he examines the question what principles of reparation the law of international responsibility provides in cases where a state is involved in the commission of international crimes. He first expands on the proposition that individualistic approaches to international crimes only deal with part, and often not the most significant part of the problem, and that we should focus our attention on the systemic causes underlying such crimes (Section 2). In section 3, he discusses individual responsibility as a form of reparation. In section 4, he focuses on the law of state responsibility proper. In section 5, he examines the role of the Security Council in providing reparation for international crimes. In section 6, he draws some conclusions.
