    Abstract The principle of common but differentiated responsibility (CBDR) has been based on the international community’s recognition of historical responsibilities and the principles of fairness and solidarity. It has been argued that the newly fashionable notion of universality overturns the principle. On the contrary, universality and common responsibility would be impossible in practice without responsibilities being differentiated because of disparities in capabilities, including those that are historically rooted, among human communities.
