7- "What is the "rights-based approach" all about? Perspectives from international development agencies" (Working Paper)
Prev Documents 7 of 8 Next
This paper seeks to unravel some of the tangled threads of contemporary rights talk. Where is today’s
rights-based discourse coming from? Why rights and why now? What are the differences between versions
and emphases articulated by different international development actors? What are their shortcomings, and
what do these imply for the practice and politics of development? Reflecting on these questions, we
explore some of the implications of the range of different ways of relating human rights to development.
