Human rights are an important and popular subject. Since 1948 the international human rights movement has become a major force, and has produced important changes in international law. But apart from individual human rights, claims have long been made to collective rights, for example, minority rights, the rights of peoples under colonial rule, aboriginal rights. More recently claims have been made to a number of 'rights of peoples', including rghts of an economic
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.

Benedict Kingsbury, International and Comparative Law Quarterly This unified and thoughtful collection explores several fundamental issues concerning rights of peoples, and is to be welcomed as a significant contribution to the scattered and rather fragmentary literature in English in this increasingly important area.

Susan Marks, Cambridge Law Journal a most welcome contribution to a debate which ... has suffered from an unfortunate combination of neglect, glibness and confusion ... a milestone
