Human rights and pro-poor growth

Briefing/policy papers

Written by Marta Foresti

There is a growing recognition of the relationship between human rights and development, and between the failure to realise rights and continuing poverty, exclusion, vulnerability and conflict. 

This Project Briefing reviews the findings of an ODI study on the relationship between human rights and pro-poor growth, identifying points of connection, as well as contradiction. It provides  practical recommendations for a more integrated approach to human rights and pro-poor growth. The study was commissioned by the Governance Network (GOVNET), under the OECD Development Assistance Committee (OECD-DAC), to build the foundations for effective collaboration between different constituencies for sustainable development.
