Abstract
In this chapter I will argue that a justification for sharing responsibility for ‘cooperative human rights violations’ lies in the relations between actors, and more particularly in the fact that because of these relations, actors may realize results that they could not have achieved alone. I therefore argue that in order to understand whether or not shared responsibility is justified, and what the consequences thereof would be, we have to supplement the traditional account of international responsibility as independent responsibility with a relational account of international responsibility.
