He is an advocate of "the right to homeland" as a universal human right, and of the human right to peace ..While de Zayas' literary output and his international law and human rights publications are mainstream, his peace activism has rendered him somewhat controversial in the United States Impunität von Bush, 21.04.2003 (Friedensratschlag).
