This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. It argues that while international economic arrangements favour developed states that influence their substance and direction, ongoing deprivation adversely affects the 2.7 billion people concentrated in developing countries. According to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR), the existence of world poverty reflects a ‘massive and systemic breach’ of international human rights law. The fulfilment of these rights through the observance of corresponding legal obligations of international cooperation would signal the beginning of the end of poverty.
