Chapter Summary

It ensues from the previous considerations that the U.N. International Law Commission's (ILC) Articles on State Responsibility (2001) are far from being the last word on the subject, as they reckon by themselves that in some respects the law on the subject in still in a stage of development, not ripe yet for codification. Yet, endeavours to this effect undertaken in recent years have taken into account basic considerations of humanity. State responsibility occupies a central place in the corpus juris of International Law, and irradiates itself to distinct areas or chapters of this latter. Awareness of its utmost relevance is fortunately more accute in these days, as the concept of the prevalence of the rule of law at both national and international levels gains increasing space in the international agenda of this first decade of the XXIst century, particularly in that of the U.N. General Assembly.
