A Concise History of the Law of State Responsibility and Reparation in International Law
The modern doctrines of State responsibility and reparation are the result of more than 2,000 years of human thought. This chapter traces the history of some of the most important components of State responsibility and reparation. The origins of these concepts are found in the historical roots of the civil law doctrines of extra-contractual liability and the remedy of restitutio in integrum, from Roman times until their entry into European civil codes. It explains how the private law notions discussed entered into international law and how, from the fusion of these notions and concepts with those supplied through the evolving doctrines of reprisals, denial of justice, and diplomatic protection, the modern doctrines of State responsibility and reparation were born.
