This study analyzes the evolution of permanent sovereignty from a political claim to a principle of international law, and examines its significance for such controversial issues as peoples' rights, nationalization, and environmental politics. Dr. Schrijver argues that corollary rights available through permanent sovereignty must be seen alongside the corollary obligations they also entail. He thus identifies new directions sovereignty over natural resources has taken in an increasingly interdependent world.
