As a fundamental concept related to human survival and development, the right to development has garnered significant attention since its inception. After evolving from a mere goal to actual human rights, it has now become a crucial component of the human rights system. A reasonable interpretation of the connotation of the right to development from this perspective is the premise and foundation for realizing the right to development. However, despite some positive factors in the current implementation of the right to development, it still faces practical challenges. Unilateral sanctions impact a wide range of human rights, including the right to development. Insufficient international cooperation hinders the progress of underdeveloped countries, while inequality remains a primary challenge in contemporary development efforts. Putting the realization of the right to development within the research framework of international human rights law, establishing specialized human rights protection institutions, prioritizing the interests of developing countries, and promoting multilateralism are beneficial for achieving the right to development.
