The chapters in this volume are based on the papers that were presented at the Calcutta seminar organized in March 1992 by the ILA Committee on Legal Aspects of a New International Economic Order (NIEO). The conference focused on the right to development, in particular its ideas and ideology, human rights aspects and implementation in specific areas of international law. The volume is accordingly organized in three parts.;The chapters cover a range of subjects, derived from the UN Declaration of the Right to Development. From the developed and underdeveloped world 33 authors discuss topics including: contents, scope and implementation of the right to development; human rights of individuals and peoples; co-operation between the European Community and the Lome IV states; current developments in investments treaties; refugee protection; development and democracy; the concept of sustainable development; environmental issues; protection of intellectual property; transfer of technology; human rights in international financial institutions;and the legal conceptualization of the debt crisis.;Professor Oscar Schachter observes in the first chapter that the Declaration continues to be a ""challenging subject for legal commentary"" for its debatable legal status, its combination of collective and individual rights, its expansive conception of development and its equivocal obligation. Apart from support, doubts about the concept of the right to development may also be found in this volume.
