Global Responsibility for Human Rights

Margot E Salomon

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines dominant ideologies and practices related to international economic activities, through the lens of the various elements that constitute the right to development. Drawing on the recent work of the expert UN High-Level Task Force on the Implementation of the Right to Development, and the intergovernmental Working Group on the Right to Development to which its recommendations are reported, the chapter considers what the right to development indicates about deficiencies in our international economic order, and how its precepts might be instructive of change. It argues that greater coherence among the various strands of international law and policy are necessary to allow for the exercise of human rights, which the international community has concluded, is first among the responsibilities of governments.

Keywords:   human rights, UN High-Level Task Force, economic growth, international law, international community, right to development
