Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the various forms that responsibility and liability may assume in international law. Comparing the concepts of responsibility and liability shows which of the two adapts itself better to the regulation of hazardous activities. In the chapter, the main features of international responsibility for wrongful acts are compared with those of sine delicto liability, and consideration is given to the practical consequences of differentiating one from the other. It is generally agreed that in liability both the act causing harm and its legal consequences are contained in the primary norm.

Keywords: International law; sine delicto liability; State responsibility
