Extraterritorial Obligations

Revised version: Twelve reasons to strengthen extraterritorial human rights

A second edition of this brochure further addresses some of the reasons needed for the understanding of States' obligations and a renewed commitment to human rights

The ETO Consortium, a network of more than 80 Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and academics dealing with economic, social and cultural rights (ESCR) and using the Maastricht Principles on States extraterritorial obligations as terms of reference, has published a second edition of this informative booklet as a tool to highlight the indivisibility of human rights and point out the danger of reducing States obligations to territory.

Written by Rolf Künnemann, Human Rights Director of FIAN International, the second edition of the "Twelve Reasons to Strengthen Extraterritorial Human Rights" booklet captures some of the discussions inside and outside the ETO Consortium and points out the main key reasons for States to rediscover the primacy of human rights and to remain or become legitimate.
