Abstract

This paper seeks to examine some of the questions relating to the right of development as a human right, the nature of which is often open to conflicting interpretations. Further, it asks, does the existence of the right of development as a human right actually assist development and why has it been so difficult to secure a consensus among member states of the UN on such a vital issue? The author argues that the right to development is related to ideas of justice and equity, world over and is fundamentally different from conventional policies and programmes related to development.
