This Article discusses the Bosnia v. Serbia case and the Darfur Inquiry and asks whether, in coming to their respective decisions on Serbia and Sudan's responsibilities, the ICJ and the ICID did all that was required of them, especially under the law of State responsibility. This Article first considers whether, despite striking similarities in the circumstances of Darfur and Srebrenica, the ICID's decision that genocide did not occur in Darfur is credible, defensible and could withstand legal analysis under international law. The analysis here juxtaposes the ICID's findings with the ICJ's decision on the Srebrenica genocide.
