Asif H Qureshi


“The ownership of the world’s resources rests with mankind as a whole. International allocative decisions therefore ultimately need to be informed by this paradigm — whether made multilaterally, nationally or in terms of individuals. The challenge for legal scholars is to bring to bear to their analysis this international perspective.”
