Main Article Content

Carlos Villan-Duran

Abstrakt

While most developed States refuse accepting the concept of human right to peace, developing States support civil society organizations’ contribution to the codification and progressive development of the emerging human right to peace. This study focuses on the strong legal foundations of the human right to peace in international human rights law. Therefore, developed States should listen to other States and civil society organizations and join the ongoing codification process of the human right to peace at the UN Human Rights Council.
