Donor Experiences with Integrating Human Rights into their Development Assistance

This study was commissioned by the Governance Network's Human Rights and Development Task Team to contribute to the process of developing an action-oriented policy statement on human rights and development. The study analyses and synthesises the approaches and experiences of bilateral and multilateral agencies working on human right and development. It examines the range of approaches that donors had adopted in integrating human rights in terms of both policy statements and practice and discusses some of the preliminary lessons about the added value of human rights for development. It concludes by making recommendations about possible areas of engagement for GOVNET to support the further strategic integration of human rights into development. The study will be published as part of the OECD series: The Development Dimension. It is funded by OECD DAC Network on Governance (GOVNET)
