Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the role and influence of the principle of solidarity on international human rights law. It analyses the pronouncement of the United Nations on solidarity and the impact of solidarity on some international legal regimes concerned with peace, trade law and environmental law. This article argues that solidarity not only facilitated the internationalization of human rights concerns but also significantly influenced modern doctrines of reparations for human rights victims, the responsibility to protect and humanitarian assistance.

Keywords: solidarity, human rights law, United Nations, international legal regimes, reparations, human rights victims, responsibility to protect, humanitarian assistance
