Abstract

This chapter examines recent literature on questions of corporate and collective responsibility in the state. It distinguishes between the different types of agents to whom responsibility for a state’s action could be attributed, and between the different types of responsibility that could be attributed in this context. It then examines whether the state itself, as a corporate agent, could be held morally responsible for its actions, and whether it is plausible to argue that all its citizens share responsibility for what their state does in their name.
