Global Responsibility for Human Rights

Margot E Salomon

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses several bases for disaggregating global responsibility pertaining to collective state conduct, for violations of socio-economic rights, manifested as world poverty. It draws on legal doctrine and interpretive guidelines in the area of human rights. These proposals are then considered in light of what are routinely shown to be structural obstacles to the realization of socio-economic rights. The focus is on the attribution of responsibility within a global environment legally inhospitable to individualizing the human rights responsibilities of developed states due to the extent of economic interdependence, the many actors implicated, and the enduring nature of hunger and other deprivations in poor countries.

Keywords:   human rights violations, world poverty, international obligations, state conduct, socio-economic rights
