Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses and analyzes the implementation of solidarity with developing countries in two different areas of international law: international environmental law (B) and world trade law (C). While both areas implement the concept of solidarity, they do so to clearly varying extents.The chapter argues that the reason for this diff erence is that diff erent types of solidarity are relevant in the different areas. The treatment of developing countries in international environmental law is characterized by self-centered solidarity; developing countries in world trade law benefi t from altruistic solidarity. Th e former type of solidarity is more likely to be implemented, whereas the latter type all too often remains an aspiration (D). The fact that solidarity is reasonably well implemented in environmental law supports the thesis of the chapter that self-centred solidarity is implemented better than altruistic solidarity.
