Rights and social action for risk management: Reflections on local, national and international roles and responses

Working papers

Written by Andrew Norton

Based on work commissioned for the World Development Report 2014, this report aims to explore the links between risk management, rights and collective action through a set of examples. Case studies involving elements of social mobilization across Ecuador; Bangladesh; Brazil; South Africa and Zimbabwe demonstrate ways in which the language and practice of human rights can support better conditions for poor people to manage risks.
