Annexed to GA Resolution 56/83 of 2001, the International Law Commission's Articles on Responsibility for Internationally Wrongful Acts put the international law of responsibility on a sound footing. As Special Rapporteur for the second reading, James Crawford helped steer it to a successful conclusion. With this book, he provides a detailed analysis of the general law of international responsibility and the place of state responsibility in particular within that framework. It serves as a companion to The International Law Commission's Articles on State Responsibility: Introduction, Text and Commentaries (Cambridge, 2002) and is essential reading for scholars and practitioners concerned with issues of international responsibility, whether they arise in interstate relations, in the context of arbitration or litigation, or in bringing international claims.

About the Author

James Crawford is Whewell Professor of International Law at the University of Cambridge. From 1997 to 2001 he was the ILC Special Rapporteur on State Responsibility.


'Undoubtedly, the book under review qualifies as the most authoritative expression of state responsibility and its rules today, not only because of the extensive discussion devoted to the different aspects of state responsibility, but also because Crawford's background in the field gives him special knowledge that other scholars may lack ...' Katja Creutz, Nordic Journal of International Law
