This conclusion summarizes all the major arguments and themes explored in the book. It recalls that although they appear suited to address violations of global security obligations, UN organs remain fettered by serious intrinsic or political limitations that may prevent them from being reliable implementers of State responsibility in global security contexts. However, the conclusion reiterates that the Security Council can implement State responsibility in certain circumstances, particularly as regards counterterrorism matters, which present a sui generis character and straddle Chapter VII terrain. Ultimately, this conclusion frames the possible institutionalization of State responsibility as a welcome alternative to unchecked unilateralism, self-judging, and autoqualification.
