Kathryn Greenman traces the emergence and contestation of the rules of state responsibility for rebels during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. She starts by investigating a series of mixed claims commissions involving Latin American states that took place between 1839 and 1927 and then moves through the scholarly debates that proliferated particularly from the turn of the twentieth century onwards. She examines how arose following the disruption of periods of capitalist expansion by revolution or civil war, and how the question of state responsibility for rebels became a problem for international law as Latin America was integrated into the global economy.
