RIGHT TO DEVELOPMENT, DOES IT REALLY SERVE AFRICA FOR ITS DEVELOPMENT?

Mario-Charles K CLIKAN

Abstract


The declaration on right to development voted by UN in 1986 had brought a lot of protestation because of its economic, political and legal reorder of the international community. In fact, among international law scholars, the idea behind right to development are very ambiguous and identify its proper use for developing countries will take long to reach a common consensus from western countries. So, for an effective implementation and enforceable respond from Western industrialized countries regarding the way they have to participate into Africa countries development (in the case of this article, France) has not only been debated  among industrialized countries ,but also with the concerned of the matter. The result is that they have to create and enforce measures that oblige the international community to seriously take right to development as a whole component of Human Rights as a tool of development. Hence, the legal and political significance of right to development lays on the implementation of right to development by french speaking countries on the domestic level before reach the international one.
