ABSTRACT:  The study presents and analyzes on what grounds can the government of the United States of America can be held liable for the clean up of the toxic waste contamination at the former U.S. military bases in Clark Air Base, and how assertive was the Philippine government in pushing for the said responsible to the United States. The study sought to address the following objectives first, to present the historical background of the former US military bases in the Philippines, second, to enumerate the effects of the toxic contamination on the health of the people living near the former Clark Air Base, third, to determine the grounds where US government can be held liable for the clean up of toxic waste contamination in Clark Air Base, and lastly to present and assess the Philippine and United States government actions regarding the toxic waste contamination and how competent is the Philippine government in pushing US responsibility in the clean up of its US military base at Clark Air Base. The method that was used in this study was content-analysis. In order to establish US liability the researchers used the Law of International Obligation as framework. The study found out that the struggle of the Philippines for independence was the primary reason for the retention of US military bases in the Philippines. The toxic contamination was discovered after the bases closure. It has caused serious damage to the environment and health of the residents near the site. The United States government can be held liable in cleaning up in its former military bases in the Philippines under International Law for violation of 1972 Stockholm Convention on Human Rights and Environment, Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, 1994 Draft Declaration.
