Chapter Summary

The search for peace, and the construction of the right to peace, have historical roots that become notorious with the projects of perpetual peace of the XVIIIth century, such as those of Saint-Pierre (1712) and of I. Kant (1795). The conceptual construction of the right to peace in International Law has antecedents in successive initiatives taken, in distinct contexts at international level, along the XXth century. Somewhat distinctly, the conceptual construction of the right to development has attained, at this beginning of the XXIst century, a degree of consensus reflected in international instruments which does not yet appear to have been achieved to the same extent by the parallel construction of the right to peace. From the international legal thinking of the second half of the XXth century a distinction emanates between the international law of development and the right to development.

Keywords: international law; right to development; right to peace; XXth century
