Critical Acclaim
‘The full realization of the right to development is still a long quest for the international community. This unique and pioneering Encyclopedia reveals and deconstructs the power of law in achieving development in its economic, social, cultural, environmental and political dimensions. De Feyter, Erdem Türkelli and de Moerloose have concocted a masterpiece that highlights how lawyers can contribute to the welfare of the developing world as much as Amartya Sen.’
– Makane Moïse Mbengue, University of Geneva, Switzerland and SciencesPo Law School, France
