The Seriousness Test

The Seriousness Test

(p.106) 8 The Seriousness Test
The Responsibility of States for International Crimes

Nina H. B. Jørgensen

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes several factors relevant to the analysis of seriousness with regard to international crimes. It also describes attempts to distinguish between the categories of international crimes on the basis of seriousness. The difficulty of laying down a strict seriousness test is readily apparent and it is important to recognize that even though a wrongful act may fall within the broad category as identified in the International Law Commission's description of international crimes, this is no guarantee that it comes within the concept of state criminality.

Keywords:   seriousness, international crimes, seriousness test, International Law Commission, state criminality
