Human rights and development: Towards mutual reiforcement



For several decades after the UN Charter insisted that the promotion of development and human rights were central to post-World War II conceptions of world order, the two fields remained in virtual isolation from one another. Only in the past 15 years or so, with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the realization that freedom and economic well-being are empirically linked, have the professional communities dealing with development and human rights issues really begun to communicate effectively. But too much of the dialogue has been confined to an abstract to theoretical level.
This volume addresses highly specific but crucial aspects of human rights and development interface, including the economics of social rights; land rights and women's empowerment; child labor and access to education; reform of legal and judicial systems; the human rights role of the private sector; and building human rights into development planning, especially the Poverty Reduction Strategy process.
Contributors include lawyers, economists, and both scholarly and practitioner perspective are presented. Several chapters are written by Senior World Bank officials, including the Bank's President and the head of the International Finance Corporation.
