This book examines the responsibility of States and international
organizations for complicity (aid or assistance) in an
internationally wrongful act. Despite the recognition of
responsibility for complicity as a rule of customary international
law by the International Court of Justice, this book argues that
the effectiveness and utility of this form of responsibility is
fraught with systemic and operational limits. These limits include
a lack of clarity in its constituent elements, its co-existence
with primary rules prohibiting complicity and the obligations of
due diligence, its implementation and the underlying causal tests,
its uncertain relationship to other forms of shared and indirect
responsibility, and its potential as a form of attribution of
conduct. This book submits that the content and elements of this
form of responsibility need adjustments to respond more effectively
to the phenomenon of complicity in international affairs. Awarded
