(p.343) Conclusion to Part III
Institutionalizing State Responsibility

Vincent-Joël Proulx

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter recalls the major themes and issues addressed in Part III of the monograph, emphasizing that the invocation of self-defence (or more modest forcible reactions) in response to global security violations should be a solution of last resort. It also acknowledges that self-defence repertoire and the law of State responsibility may differ in both scope and consequences. Ultimately, this chapter argues for a strong role for the Security Council in vetting forcible responses and monitoring States’ violations of global security obligations.

Keywords:   implementation of State responsibility, use of force, self-defence, lex specialis, counterterrorism, self-help, countermeasures, secondary norms, ILC Articles, non-State actors
