Implementation of the right to development


Working Group on the Right to Development
19th session
23-27 April 2018

[Excerpt of the declaration]

The discussion within the Working Group this morning deals with the implementation of the right to development. Most of the elements contained in the two documents presented to the Working Group for the drafting of a convention on the right to development are significant and praise-worthy. However, we should like to remind the assembly that the basic reference for the right to development is the Declaration on the Right to Development adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1986 in order to achieve the desired objective. This Declaration was adopted at the time by one vote against and several abstentions, but it found unanimous support among the member states at the World Conference on Human Rights in Vienna in 1993.
