This course explores the origins and content of State responsibility law as a set of secondary rules. It examines the main elements of this law as customary international law codified by the International Law Commission in its Articles on the Responsibility of States for Internationally Wrongful Acts and the manner in which they are used as guidance in procedures to invoke the responsibility of a State for an internationally wrongful act. The Articles will serve as the basic legal text for students following this course.
