Human Rights Judicial and Semi-Judicial Bodies and Customary International Law on State Responsibility

Chapter

Abstract

The object of the present contribution is to verify whether judicial and semi-judicial bodies instituted under international treaties dealing with the protection of human rights play a role in the process of the definition and evolution of the customary law on State responsibility. To this end, it will be assessed whether, and to what extent, these bodies apply the customary law on State responsibility in assessing the responsibility of States parties to the treaties which are the object of their jurisdiction.
