The Right to Development: A Review of the Current State of the Debate

Research reports

The objective of this report is to assess the relevance of the Right to Development for development policy and practice, and to make practical recommendations to the UK Department for International Development. The Right to Development is a relatively new human rights concept. Its content, nature and status are still contested by academic scholars, and the intergovernmental process aiming to reach a political consensus on its meaning and practical interpretation is highly politicised.
