State Responsibility and the 1948 Genocide Convention

State Responsibility and the 1948 Genocide Convention

(p.273) Chapter 12 State Responsibility and the 1948 Genocide Convention
The Reality of International Law

Nina Jørgenson

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines state responsibility in relation to the 1948 Genocide Convention. It suggests that the travaux preparatoires of the convention indicate a certain amount of confusion among the drafters, who were keen to reflect the popular spirit of the age but were hampered by the conservatism of states. It concludes that it is arguable that Article IX was deliberately left ambiguous as the question of state responsibility was so difficult to settle.

Keywords:   Genocide Convention, state responsibility, conservatism, travaux preparatoires, international law
