SUMMARY

It is generally recognised in both literature and jurisprudence that the notion of proportionality constitutes a key requirement of self-defence and of countermeasures. The determination of the exact content of the proportionality principle is, however, very complex and controversial. This study demonstrates that consequently a State can no longer commit an international crime. Yet it also shows that by applying more serious consequences to the commission of a serious breach of peremptory norms the idea behind the concept does add something valuable to the existing concepts of jus cogens and obligations erga omnes.Christian Wicker is the author of 'The Concepts of Proportionality and State Crimes in International Law: An Analysis of the Scope of Proportionality in the Right of Self-defence and in ... Internationalen Und Zum Offentlichen Recht)', published 2006 under ISBN 9780820487373 and ISBN 0820487376.
