Review Of Sustainable Development And The Utility Of The North-South Paradigm In Relation To International Law
LAWS 4007 - International Environmental Law
12 Pages • Essays / Projects • Year: Pre-2020
One of the biggest obstacles to global collaboration has been the so called North-South Divide - old battles between the perceived wealthy industrial countries of the North and the poor developing countries of the South. The idea or concept of a North-South divide has fuelled the activity of policy makers and scholars alike. Therien indicates that the North-South divide has been central to the explanation of world inequality and poverty from as early as the 1960s until the late 1980s. To address the many differences between the North and the South, the concept of sustainable development as defined in 1987 by the World Commission on Environment and Development (Brundtland Commission 1987) was used as one of the environmental strategies to bridge the North-South divide. This was done despite the fact that there was little or no agreement over what the concept precisely means, sustainable development means so many different things to so many different people and organisations. This paper will briefly look at the concept of sustainable development and its role in bridging the North-South divide. In terms of international law, the gap between rich and poor countries no longer has the resonance it once had. We will also examine the relevance, if any, of the North-South divide paradigm in terms of international law.
