The new crime of aggression constitutes a milestone in the development of international law. Violations of the ius ad bellum do not only entail criminal responsibility. Perpetrators are also under an obligation to make reparation. This regime of individual civil responsibility is still highly unexplored. In the present article, it is examined in how far the principles and concepts that have emerged in the field of state responsibility can be applied by analogy. While there are some parallels between the two regimes, it is submitted that the structural differences between states as corporate entities and individuals have to be taken into account by the International Criminal Court in its future practice.
