The Declaration on the Right to Development was adopted by General Assembly resolution 41/128 of 4 December 1986. In 1998, the existing UN Open-Ended Working Group on the Right to Development and the mandate of the Independent Expert on the Right to Development were established. Since then, Dr Arjun Sengupta has been the Independent Expert on the Right to Development until this year, ending his six-year term. In accordance with his mandate, Dr Sengupta produced six reports in response to the questions raised by the Working Group. In doing so, Dr Sengupta has created a better understanding of the right to development and has provided invaluable work for others to benefit from through academic articles and practical suggestions for the enhancement of the right to development. The Essex Human Rights Review (EHRR) was delighted to have the opportunity to pose Dr Sengupta the following questions for the first issue of the Review.
