Obstacles to the realization of the right to development


52nd session

Since the adoption of the Declaration on the Right to Development (1986), no real progress has been made in this area. Worse still, we have regressed. Indeed, despite the 1993 Vienna Consensus, the dominant powers are calling into question this right, which is nonetheless fundamental to the full development and fulfillment of every individual.

Among the main obstacles to the realization of the right to development, we note in particular: the inequitable distribution of wealth; the non-respect of the right to self-determination of peoples; the burden of foreign debt and the lack of international cooperation.
