Full text: Responsibility of states for damage caused in their territory to the person or property of foreigners

the Bases of Discussion of the Preparatory Committee, there is also added 
to the cases of mob violence and popular disturbance the fact that the move- 
ment should be directed against foreigners as such. There appears to be no 
reason whatever for this distinction. The feelings that stir the mob might 
be either political, religious, economic or international. Their nature is 
immaterial. The nature and aim of the movement are questions which the 
international court might consider in determining the degree of diligence that 
the State should have exercised. But beyond this, which has no relation to 
the substantive law, it seems unnecessary to refer specifically to one of the 
various forms of popular disturbances.
