Shared Responsibility in International Law

The Research Project on Shared Responsibility in International Law (SHARES)  announces the official launch of the SHARES website: The website includes a detailed description of the SHARES project and its project members. The website also features news, events, publications, blog posts and resources on shared responsibility in international law.
The ambition of the SHARES project is to examine an unexplored and largely unrecognized problem: the allocation of international responsibilities among multiple states and other actors. It seeks to uncover the nature and extent of the problem of sharing responsibility in an increasingly interdependent and heterogeneous international legal order. The project addresses general issues of responsibility in international law, of States as well as other entities, such as international organizations, individuals and other non-State actors, which will impact various fields of law, such as refugee law, environemental law, human rights law or the laws of armed conflict. 
The SHARES project is a research project of the Amsterdam Centre for International Law, led by Professor André Nollkaemper, and funded by the European Research Council.
