As if you really needed another reason to to go Amsterdam at the end of May . . . . The Research Project on Shared Responsibility in International Law (SHARES) will host a seminar on Distribution of Responsibilities in International Law in Amsterdam on May 30-31, 2013. This Seminar will consider extra-legal perspectives on how responsibility is distributed when multiple wrongdoing actors contribute to a harmful outcome.
Although various grounds have been advanced to distribute responsibilities in other disciplines, such grounds have only to a limited extent been linked to the international legal discourse. In view of the increasing relevance of questions of distribution of responsibilities and of the paucity of international law on this point, there is much reason for a fundamental inquiry into the bases and justifications for apportionment of responsibilities. Such an inquiry could support an articulation of critique of present international law, and provide a basis for reform. At the seminar, 13 contributions by leading experts from various disciplines will be discussed.
Only limited seats are available. For more information on how to participate, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
