Nollkaemper: Responsibility

André Nollkaemper (Univ. of Amsterdam - Law) has posted Responsibility (in Concepts for International Law - Contributions to Disciplinary Thought, Jean d’Aspremont & Sahib Singh eds., forthcoming). Here's the abstract:
The idea that international law requires that a breach is undone and reparation is provided is central to law as such – no less so to international law. Take away the notion of responsibility, and much of how we think about international law and why it matters starts to transform. This paper explores the structuring role of responsibility in international legal discourse, and discusses how transformations in the international legal system that move the dominant interstate system to the background inevitably affect the structuring role of international responsibility.
