"In the course of the 20th and 21st centuries, major offences committed by individuals have been subject to progressive systematisation in the framework of international criminal law. Proposals developed within the context of the League of Nations coordinated individual liability and state responsibility. By contrast, international law as codified after World War II in the framework of the United Nations embodies a neat divide between individual criminal liability and state aggravated responsibility. However, conduct of state organs and agents generates dual liability. Through a critical analysis of key international rules, the book assesses whether the divisive approach to individual and state responsibility is normatively consistent."--Prelilminary page.
