  • circumstances precluding wrongfulness
  • force majeure, distress and necessity
  • fundamental change of circumstances
  • attribution for the conduct of different branches of government, State entities, provinces and municipalities
  • contributory fault
  • responsibility for continuous and composite acts and the cumulative effect of a series of acts.
