Interdependence and Its Imperatives

Interdependence and Its Imperatives

(p.13) 1 Interdependence and Its Imperatives
Global Responsibility for Human Rights

Margot E Salomon

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of how interdependence shapes international law. The increase in international integration over the last century has shaped international law, with rules guiding inter-state cooperation commensurate with the increase in their interdependence. Sovereignty has gradually given way to demands that a state under the international order comply with its international duties and obligations. The changing international environment has resulted in the re-orientation of priorities: states are to act faithfully on the duties they owe to each other, and on the duties owed to a wider international community. The chapter then discusses economic globalization as a structural impediment to the exercise of human rights, poverty as a human rights issue, the structural approach to realizing human rights, and the right to development.

Keywords:   human rights, international community, sovereignty, economic globalization, poverty, international law, interdependence
