GCILS Director, Professor Christian Tams will speak at an event organised by British Institute of International and Comparative Law, titled: “State responsibility: Where are we and where to next?”, on Thursday, 30 September 2021, 14:30 – 16:00 (UK Time).

“It has been 20 years since the International Law Commission completed its work on state responsibility, culminating in the United Nations General Assembly deciding to take note of the ILC Articles on the topic. The provisions contained in this document have been applied in judicial practice for decades, despite their legal form remaining uncertain. 

Simultaneously, the law and policy applicable to state responsibility is developing, raising the matters of whether and how the international legal framework in this area will change to meet the challenges of contemporary and future practice. The prominence of non-state actors, the expansion of new thematic areas, the creation of new rules, and the behaviour of states all pose questions regarding where the international law on state responsibility stands today, and where it could venture next.”
