Third World Attitude Towards International Law
Third World Attitude towards International Law attempts to look afresh at the history of colonial international law, engage previous trends in third world international law, take cognizance of the dramatic changes which have characterized the body of international law in the last few decades from the perspective of third world peoples, record their resistance to unjust and oppressive international laws, and advance new approaches that address their needs and concerns. The objective would be to regain economic and social space for independent and self reliant development of third world countries and to establish a democratic and just world order. One of the most dramatic developments in international law has been the growth of laws focusing on the individual, which provide protection and require accountability whereas in the past, international law focused primarily on regulating state behavior and defining states rights, it has increasingly been involved in identifying rights and holding individuals accountable and this trend began after world war II.
