Principles of International Social Justice

  • Oscar Schachter


Wolfgang Friedmann’s profound concern with problems of social justice and his strong support of international efforts on behalf of disadvantaged peoples make it especially fitting to address these related themes in an essay in his honour. His stimulating papers on unjust enrichment, his detailed inquiries into joint ventures and the administration of development aid, his advocacy of equitable sharing of ocean resources, his perceptive studies of international cooperative arrangements — these are not only lasting contributions to legal scholarship but also eloquent testimony of his dedication of the building of a just and decent social order for all peoples.
