#### Abstract

This doctoral dissertation provides an analysis of responsibility of international organizations for the acts of their agents in general international law with particular emphasis on the functioning of the EU. The dissertation refers entirely to secondary rules resulting from internationally wrongful acts performed by international organization as codified in Draft Articles on Responsibility of International Organizations. In the first chapter the author analyses the notion of international organization. The Second and third chapters are dedicated to the ways of determining legal personality of international organizations, which is an indispensable condition for attribution of responsibility. Within this framework the author decided to briefly examine the issues related to the determination and scope of competences of international organizations. The general regime of international responsibility, with special attention to the hypothesis of its unity, is synthetically discussed in the fourth chapter. Conditions of responsibility of international organizations for the acts of their agents are discussed in the fifth chapter. Circumstances precluding wrongfulness are analyzed in the sixth chapter. Chapters seven and eight respectively elucidate the consequences of attribution of responsibility to the organization in international law as well as issues related to its implementation. The author draws the most important conclusions deriving from the undertaken analysis and formulates some critical remarks in the final chapter.
