Summary/Abstract "Denial of justice is one of the oldest bases of state responsibility. This book examines its modern understanding. The possibilities for prosecuting this delict have evolved in fundamental ways. It is now settled law that States cannot disavow international responsibility by arguing that their courts are independent of the government. Even more importantly, the doors of international tribunals have swung wide open to admit claimants other than States: non-governmental organizations, corporations, and individuals. Several recent cases of great importance are examined."--BOOK JACKET
