|Description:||The International Law Commission began addressing the question of state responsibility at its first session in 1949. The Draft Articles were adopted by the International Law Commission at its 53rd session, and reported to the General Assembly in November 2001. This site links to the text of the Draft Articles, an analytical guide to the drafting process, commentaries, and the ILC Report to the General Assembly.
By General Assembly Resolution, A/Res/56/83 (2002/01/28) (PDF), the Draft Principles were commended to "the attention of Governments . . . to the question of their future adoption . . . " and included in the "provisional agenda of its fifty-ninth session [under] an item entitled 'Responsibility of States for Internationally Wrongful Acts.'"
