Chapter Summary

The end of the grand ideological divide of the world and the end of the Cold War seemed to have created favourable conditions for allowing international law a more prominent role as an instrument for fostering genuine co-operation among all States. As is well known, the principles in question have evolved in the long process of the development of international law, and are now embodied in the Charter of the United Nations and form part of customary international law. There is an important aspect of the critique on the part of "Third World" authors which is especially relevant to the subject discussed in this chapter. In the past two decades, the question of human rights has become a focus point in international relations and, correspondingly, in the political and legal sciences.

Keywords: Cold War; human rights; international law; Third World authors; United Nations
