The Responsibility of States for International Crimes

Nina H. B. Jørgensen

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the concept of obligations erga omnes and the essential distinction between obligations erga omnes and other obligations of international law. It also describes the obligations giving rise to responsibility erga omnes. Some indications as to which obligations qualified as obligation erga omnes include contemporary rights of protection, including protection from slavery and racial discrimination. Consequently, rights of international protection may be divided into two categories: those which are conferred by ‘international instruments of a universal or quasi-universal character’ and those which have entered into the body of general international law.

Keywords:   obligations erga omnes, erga omnes, responsibility erga omnes, protection, slavery, racial discrimination, international protection, international law
