This chapter discusses burden-sharing in the context of secondary obligations (responsibility) under international law relating to the energy sector. The allocation of shared responsibilities among multiple state and/or other actors is relatively unexplored in international law. The possibility was not excluded by the International Law Commission (ILC) in its work on the responsibility of States and of International Organizations (IOs), but it provided only limited guidance on the allocation of responsibility in such cases. Thus, this chapter considers the practice of shared responsibility (and ‘softer’ forms of shared accountability) in the specific context of international energy activities regulated at international law (i.e. the system of law governing relations between states).
