The rise of rights: rights-based approaches to international development

Format:Paper
Publication year: 
2003

This Policy Briefing from IDS looks at rights-based approaches to development, something increasingly being used by international development agencies. It asks if their policy and practice support peopleÆs own efforts to turn their rights into reality. It first looks at the concept of rights based approaches and what international agencies mean by this, then goes to examine how rights are evolving, issues around power, politics and claims and finally some implications of rights-based approaches.
