The right to self-determination has been a driving force in international law and politics through much of the post World War II period. In the 1970s it was joined by a number of other human rights attributed to peoples rather than to individuals, including rights to development, peace, a clean environment, and humanitarian assistance. These so-called "third generation solidarity rights" have attracted considerable attention, especially from developing country governments, activists and scholars. In this volume, a group of leading experts examines the current status of the various rights and reflects upon their likely significance in the twenty-first century.

Industry Reviews

"Overall, this is a timely and informative volume ... the volume's most distinctive contribution, namely, its anti-essentialist perspective on people's rights and the elucidation of the ways in which rights can have both empowering and contstraining effects depending on their discoursive articulations and the political ends that the latter serve." - Modern Law Review
