This volume of Human   Rights and International Legal Discourse is dedicated to
exploring some ongoing debates regarding human rights in relation to development
and development cooperation. The issues addressed by the different contributions
surfaced as unsettled aspects of the 'human rights and development nexus' at the
three editions of the international summer course 'Human Rights for Development'
organized by the Flemish Interuniversity Research Network on Law and Development
(Law&Dev)  in Antwerp, in 2012, in Ghent, in 2014, and in Leuven, in 2015.2 All the
contributors to this volume were involved in at least one of these courses, either as a
participant, or as a lecturer and organizer.
   The volume is composed as follows. First, a thematic section with three articles
reflecting on various links between  human   rights and development  and/or
development  cooperation (Vandenbogaerde; Verdonck; Corradi). Second, a free
submission on the interplay between international law and human rights law in the
field of extra-territorial obligations regarding the right to water in transboundary
contexts (Murillo). And third, a book review essay on law and development studies
(Vandenhole). As such, the volume offers a glimpse of the kind of teaching and
research that is undertaken in this area by scholars based in Flanders.
   Common   to the three articles that make up the thematic section is a concern with
advancing a critical understanding of the role of different human rights duty bearers
in areas that are relevant to development and development cooperation. These areas
include states' extraterritorial positive obligations with respect to economic, social
and  cultural rights (Vandenbogaerde), the mechanisms  to hold transnational
corporations accountable for the human rights impact of their extractive operations
(Verdonck), and development aid in order to improve the human rights record of non-
state justice providers (Corradi).
