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, aclean 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 likelysignificance in the twenty-first century.
Philip Alston is Professor of International Law at the European University Institute in Florence. He is the editor of The UN and Human Rights (OUP 1995) and The EU and Human Rights (OUP 1999) and is the General Editor of the European Journal of International Law.
