This book chapter focuses on three instances of international administration – in Nauru, Bosnia, and Kosovo – that have given rise to claims that can be construed as relevant for the debate on shared responsibility. These examples (discussed respectively in section 2, 3 and 4) represent a situation of trusteeship, a situation of partial territorial administration, and a situation of plenary territorial administration. By examining three different forms of administration, this chapter helps to demonstrate the variety in the responsibility issues that can arise when international actors (third states and/or international organisations) undertake the administration of a territory.
