Development policies, asymmetrical trade relations and global financial systems

Obiora Chinedu Okafor, Luis Eslava and Celine Tan

To what extent should development policies and trade and financial structures be critically examined from a postcolonial perspective? How are self-determination and sovereignty construed in terms of access to raw materials, food, water and land, as well as in terms of their distribution? Who should decide this and how? Is referring to social and economic human rights helpful in these processes of negotiation? What paradigm shift and re-interpretations of international law are offered from a postcolonial perspective?
