The Rights of Peoples

kind - the 'right to development', for example, or to permanent sovereignty over natural resources. Some claims are even more ambitious - for example, the right to peace, or to a healthy environment.
It has been argued that these 'peoples rights' form a 'third generation' of human rights. This development is expressly recognized in the African Charter of Human and Peoples Rights of 1981. The essays in this volume discuss, from a variety of perspectives, the claims made for a 'third generation' of peoples rights. Is this a desirable development in human rights? Or an attempt to undermine established individual rights? What is the status of these rights against governments and states?
The volume also includes a documentary appendix with details of relevant texts, and a comprehensive bibliography, making the collection the most balanced and informative account of the 'peoples rights' movement yet produced.
