Diplomatic Protection

In a situation in which the international responsibility of a State for an injury to an alien is invoked and in which diplomatic protection may be exercised, several conditions must be fulfilled in respect of the respondent State's position. Apart from other requirements, there must be an act or omission of a person or a group of persons and this must be attributable (or imputable) to the respondent State. This attribution is a matter for international law, though the internal or national law of the State may be recognized as applicable by international law. This chapter deals with the attribution (or imputation) to the host or respondent State of violations of substantive primary rules, which relates to its objective capacity to be a respondent.
