The law of international responsibility plays a fundamental role in the modern system of international law, surpassed by none and paralleled only by the law of treaties. The volume seeks to cover the entirety of the field of international responsibility, with a particular focus on the work of the International Law Commission. It provides detailed discussion and analysis of the historically predominant topics of State responsibility, on which the ILC completed its work in 2001, and the specific sub-topic of diplomatic protection, work on which was completed by the ILC in 2006. However, it also covers both the topic of responsibility of international organizations, on which the ILC's work is ongoing (a set of draft Articles having been adopted on first reading in 2009), and that of liability for harmful activities not prohibited under international law on which the ILC adopted drafts in 2001 and 2006. The volume comprises contributions on specific issues in the international law of responsibility, authored by an international team of specialists in the field, which provides a comprehensive commentary of all aspects of the topic. The chapters are detailed in their coverage, discussing both international jurisprudence and doctrinal controversies, as well as providing a critical assessment of the relevant work of the ILC. In addition to providing detailed consideration of the general secondary rules of international responsibility, coverage is also included of certain specific systems of responsibility and their relationship with the general rules under a number of specialised regimes, in particular under certain human rights treaties, the WTO, and investment protection treaties.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Despite international law's breadth and depth, it is difficult to find a topic which would not somehow benefit from insights included in this book. The bookshould be a first port of call for academics and practitioners of international law interested in this area. With its carefully written entries and wealth of information, this book makes a great systematic contribution to international law scholarship. * Gentian Zyberi, International Law Observer *
... this book definitely should be part of the international law collection of any serious law library. It should also be the first point of departure for any serious researcher on the topic of international responsibility. * Sienho Yee, Chinese Journal of International Law *
...it cannot be doubted that some of the works contained in this commentary shall remain of enduring importance. * Sahib Singh, Austrian Review of International and European Law *
