Seminar on the topic of ‘The Relationship Between State and Individual Responsibility for International Crimes: Revisiting the Classic Problem of International Law’
In his report, G.I. Bogush has examined the relationship between the international legal responsibility of states and individual criminal liability for serious violations of international law, in the light of contemporary problems facing the international legal system.

The relevance of the problem will be exposed in light of the recent cases before the International Court of Justice, and also with regard to the hypothetical case of ‘cyber aggression’
