Modes of liability and criminal responsibility in general, have been vigorously debated in academia and by legal practitioners for decades.
Questions on criminal responsibility are pertinent:
Customary international law has been resorted to as a source of law to plug gaps in the international legal framework. This has certainly worked for defining international crimes but what about criminal responsibility?
On the occasion of the launch of Modes of Liability in International Criminal Law, edited by Jérôme de Hemptinne, Robert Roth and Elies van Sliedregt and based on research undertaken at the Geneva Academy, panelists will discuss questions related to criminal responsibility for international crimes.
