Title
The right to development in international human rights law : a call for its dissolution
Author
Abstract
In light of its recent twenty- h anniversary and the determination of the core norm of the right to development, the article revisits the question concerning its added value. A er having examined the current legal framework it nds that the right to development does not raise any new substantive obligations for States and non-State actors and thus appears dissolvable within the current framework. e article concludes by calling for a focus on extraterritorial and transnational human rights obligations in order to further advance towards an international enabling environment for the realisation of all human rights. At the moment, the right to development is doing a disservice to other human rights, especially economic, social and cultural (ESC) rights, as it considers those rights to be consolidated in their scope and content regarding international responsibilities.
