Preview

This chapter examines the role of non-forcible counter-measures in the enforcement of contemporary international law. It analyses the conditions for resorting to non-forcible counter-measures against an internationally wrongful act. These conditions include prior demand for reparation, proportionality, and the existence of breach. This chapter identifies major areas in international law in which counter-measures have no place, and discusses the relationship between recourse to dispute-settlement procedures and counter-measures.

Keywords: counter-measures; international law; reparation; dispute settlement; wrongful act
