SHARES Commentaries on the Law of International Responsibility

On Thursday 15 October 2015, a workshop will be convened to discuss the planning and process for the SHARES Commentaries on the Law of International Responsibility.

The SHARES Project was based on a 5-year research grant from the European Research Council (ERC). To mark the end of this period, the project is now embarking on the drafting of critical commentaries on the law of international responsibility, in particular as that law has been developed by the International Law Commission (ILC).

The aim is to draft a normative authoritative product (called the ‘SHARES Commentaries on the Law of International Responsibility’) that can be referred to by judges, practitioners and scholars in conjunction with the ILC Articles. The SHARES Commentaries will draw on the papers and books produced during the SHARES project.

The workshop of 15 October will discuss the approach and structure of the Commentaries as well as the drafting process. In this respect, the Workshop does not (other than was announced earlier) constitute the final event of the SHARES project.

The Commentaries will be drafted in consultation with experts during the next year, and will be presented in the fall of 2016.

GLOTHRO Final Conference ‘Beyond State Obligations in International Human Rights Law’

From 27 – 29 March 2014, the Åbo Akademi Institute for Human Rights will host the GLOTHRO Final Conference ‘Beyond State Obligations in International Human Rights Law – Towards Common Principles on the Obligations of Multiple Global Actors’.

Since its establishment in 2010, the RNP GLOTHRO (Beyond Territoriality: Globalisation and Transnational Human Rights Obligations) has sought to widen the circle of human rights duty-bearers beyond the territorial state, by bringing together the separate fields of study respectively on the human rights obligations of transnational corporations, international organisations and non-territorial states while also involving other disciplines in order to identify common principles determining the human rights obligations of the respective actors within an overall human rights obligations framework.

The conference is the concluding science meeting of the Research Networking Programme and will provide a critical overview of its findings while also indicating any remaining research gaps and future research opportunities. More information can be found on www.glothro.org.
