(p.279) Conclusion
The Responsibility of States for International Crimes

Nina H. B. Jørgensen

Oxford University Press

This book has argued that the concept of state criminality has a history that stretches back as far as the First World War, and that it has been a significant issue in the codification and development of the law relating to the international crimes and state responsibility. It also has suggested that both history and more recent state practice show that state responsibility for international crimes is an emerging category of customary international law. Thus, states can, in principle, commit crimes ranging from their earliest to their most modern manifestations, and be held criminally responsible, and that this is an emergent general principle of international law.
