This chapter attempts a synthesis of all various chapters in the book and attempts to show the links between sovereign debt and human rights. It identifies these links by reference to particular rights (socio-economic as well as civil and political) as well as by subject matter. The chapter, in addition, introduces in brief all the chapters of the book, demonstrating that debt has a direct relevance upon all the functions of the state and impacts directly upon all human rights.

Keywords:   Sovereign debt, socio-economic rights, sustainability, unilateral repudiation, United Nations
