PhD Thesis

 

Title: Omissions and International Crimes at the Crossroads of Individual Criminal and State Responsibility

PhD Supervisor: Paola Gaeta

Expected completion date: 2024

 

The PhD research examines omissions in ICL and the law of state responsibility. By outlining the parameters of individual criminal and state responsibility for omissions, the research hopes to contribute to a more coherent approach to addressing omissions. The PhD project aims to prove that, on the one hand, relying on failure to act facilitates proving state responsibility because it goes beyond scenarios where the state is itself directly responsible for an international crime. On the other hand, the goal is to influence the future practice of the international and hybrid criminal courts, in particular, to encourage them to recognise that carrying out crimes in their jurisdictions by omission is clearly possible.
