About the talk:
The allocation of shared responsibilities among multiple state and/or other actors is relatively unexplored in international law. The possibility was not excluded by the ILC in its work on the responsibility of States and of International Organisations, but it provided only limited guidance on the allocation of responsibility or of reparation in such cases. This lecture will consider the practice of shared responsibility in the specific context of international energy activities. In what circumstances might shared responsibility arise, and with what consequences? Is the concept a helpful tool in the energy resources context? The lecture reflects research contributing to the Research Project on Shared Responsibility in International Law (SHARES) of the Amsterdam Centre for International Law (see http://www.sharesproject.nl).
