Development and Rights View Jacket

  • Synopsis
    The fiftieth anniversary of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights prompts a re-examination of the links between 'development' and the range of economic, social, political and cultural rights enshrined within it. Chronic poverty is a flagrant denial of what the international community once hailed as the basic rights and fundamental freedoms on which our humanity and security must rest. The papers in this collection consider, among other entitlements, the rights to food, adequate housing, safe employment, protection from sexual assault and popular involvement in political processes which shape the lives of the poorest communities.
