Conference: Foundations of Shared Responsibility in International Law
The research project on Shared Responsibility in International Law (SHARES) carried out at the University of Amsterdam explores the allocation of international responsibilities where multiple actors contribute to an international wrong. It seeks to uncover the extent and nature of the problem of scattering international responsibilities and to provide a fresh perspective on how the ever increasing interdependence in the international legal order, can be better matched with a proper system of shared responsibility.
The Conference on Foundations of Shared Responsibility in International Law, organized at an early stage in the SHARES project, will explore fundamental and conceptual issues that explain the state of law, allow for identification of gaps and provide insights on possibilities for further development of the law pertaining to shared responsibility.
The Conference also will be a first take on the findings of the SHARES project so far, and will allow for a confrontation with other competing and/or complementary approaches.
