Reviews: 'In a significant addition to the literature, which will be of value to practitioners and academics alike, Aguirre illuminates the conflicts between international investment law and the right to development. In developing and advocating a triadic responsibility model for greater accountability of non-state actors, he convincingly makes the case that rights-based development needs to be realized in order to promote global stability and security.'

'A timely contribution to the recently reinvigorated United Nations debate on the right to development. The book offers a unique, detailed analysis of the international dimension of the right to development, and specifically of the responsibilities of developed States, corporate actors and the international community. It should be of interest not only to the international academic community, but to all those actively engaged in pursuing strategies aimed at achieving more social justice at a global scale.'
Koen De Feyter, University of Antwerp , Belgium
'In this illuminating book Daniel Aguirre advances the literature in the areas of globalisation, development and human rights... it is easily readable and extremely informative... His belief is that human rights adherence gives legitimacy and stability to states, which in turn promotes the conditions for corporations to thrive. If this can be proven, those corporations and states that determine the international markets will hopefully move towards a solution. Aguirre's book is, in my opinion, an adept description of why this should happen.'
