Hosted by the Department of Law

LSE Moot Court Room, NAB.7.02


Professor Donal Nolan

University of Oxford


Dr Emmanuel Voyiakis

Associate Professor of Law, LSE Department of Law


An all-day conference exploring issues associated with state accountability under private, public and international law, organised by the LSE Department of Law in partnership with Hebrew University and the University of Toronto. 

The accountability of states for unlawful actions they commit or wrongful losses they inflict presents theoretical and practical challenges. For instance, the applicability of certain doctrines is contested; the line between a wrongful or unlawful action, and a permitted one, can be blurry; and procedural hurdles can frustrate potential claims. 

Organisers recieved a significant number of sumbissions.
