'It is a significant achievement, and constitutes a major contribution to the literatures of human rights, international law, and international relations. Paupp brilliantly shows by historical inquiry that there has been a strain of world order thinking that derives from Woodrow Wilson that has long recognized the ethical and political need for a global structure based on international law and a commitment to human solidarity. With this book, added to his earlier work, I regard Paupp as the most important largely unappreciated writer now addressing in a creative and persuasive way the unresolved agenda of global reform.'
Richard Falk - Emeritus, Princeton University
'In reformulating the way in which we can view a reconstituted international order that is more justice-oriented, Paupp has addressed the phenomenon of an ‘emerging global constitutional order’ - an order that is increasingly characterized by the role and impact of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs). The role of NHRIs are intimately involved in making national governments and states accountable to human rights priorities. Peace and development matters must be seen as a central concern. To underscore what makes Paupp’s book completely unique is found in how he is able to grasp the significance of this rush of new trends.'
Larry Birns - Director, Council on Hemispheric Affairs
'Terrence E. Paupp’s book is a magnificent achievement and analysis of humanism and international law between the Global North and the Global South. It brings together many new initiatives and trends that will determine the future of planetary relations, by building a global constitutional order.'

'This is a work for our time, thoroughly researched, well crafted, and passionately written. Terrence Paupp reminds us of an uncomfortable truth: that ours is a world where much injustice is, indeed, structured and widespread, to the detriment of human rights, peace, and development. In this context, Paupp reminds us of the urgent need for a new international relations between the Global North and Global South, and adherence to a truly global body of law for a global community. Redefining Human Rights in the Struggle for Peace and Development is a major contribution to the long-neglected North-South discourse.'
