As the world grapples with the ongoing Russian aggression against Ukraine and its tragic consequences, the right to self-determination and the sovereign equality of States are challenged in the most fundamental way. What needs to be done to safeguard the will of the peoples, the inviolability of borders, and our fundamental rights in the 21st century?
