Abstract

It is now generally accepted that an armed attack carried out by a non-State armed group may activate the right of self-defence in Art. 51, Charter of the United Nations (UN Charter), but States relying on self defence must nevertheless ensure that the conduct of the non-State armed group is attributable to the territorial State. The International Court of Justice in the Nicaragua case defined this threshold of attribution as one of effective control over the conduct of the non-State armed group.
