This chapter examines the regime of responsibility of international organizations (IOs). It considers issues such as the applicability of circumstances precluding wrongfulness to IOs; the interplay between the responsibility of IOs and that of their member states; and the problems raised by the implementation of responsibility when conduct of IOs is at stake. It concludes that responsibility of IOs will to a large extent remain an essentially theoretical concept as long as the scope of primary obligations incumbent upon IOs is not significantly clarified and remedies open to individuals victims of internationally wrongful acts committed by organizations are not established.
