The need to implement the Right to Development framework as a solution to neocolonial violations

The Great Stink which the colonists forgot to clean up
Srruthi Lekha Raaja Elango
Colonialism led to huge economic inequalities , where few countries extracted resources from many globally. Almost all former colonial powers are today’s developed nations and their former colonial territories are all least developed and developing countries. Post colonial period left newly independent countries with instability and confusion. Beyond exploitation and instability, states were left with systems including drainage to executive mechanisms, which had been set up during the colonial period to exploit the nation. Unfortunately, many of the former colonies still follow those colonial systems and suffer to find a way out. In 1986, the Declaration on the Right to Development was created for this purpose, to support and enable states to claim their right to develop through cooperation and global commitment. However, it has failed in multiple levels to reach the people through implementation due to various reasons, that there still exists arguments if this implementation is necessary at all in the first place and if so how?
Operationalising Responsibility to Protect Doctrine (Legitimacy & Efficiency).
Srruthi Lekha Raaja Elango
The Responsibility to protect doctrine, accepted unanimously, by nature was drafted from the victim’s perspective and the necessity to protect the human rights of the civilian victims and therefore establish peace. This was a landmark doctrine, which re-established the importance of human rights and the responsibility of the state and the international community to do so in any instance. This doctrine was an output of the call by the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, who insisted on the necessity to clear the confusions and arguments between sovereignty and human rights to establish peace, at a point, when the world was witnessing mass violations of human rights nationally and regionally, which made it complicated to enforce authority to protect the victims inside a sovereign territory. Responsibility to protect gives substantial support to the dispute resolution methods for the new wave of war and conflict, dominated by civil war, regional conflict, ethnic cleansing and mass atrocities. However, it has been a very complicated discourse of humanitarian intervention, because of the questions of legitimacy and efficiency.
