Abstract

A civil court in The Hague ruled on 16 July that the Netherlands is liable for the deaths of around 300 men who died during the Srebrenica massacre in 1995. Bérénice Boutin assesses the ruling and what it means for the wider issue of state liability for the actions of UN peacekeepers. She writes that from the point of view of international law, the decision was sound and does not unreasonably extend the responsibility of troop-contributing states for the conduct of their soldiers in peacekeeping missions.
