Description

The 11th volume in the series, this work provides an analysis of two interrelated and intertwined issues. Human rights and human development are mutually reinforcing and culminate in enlarged human freedom. The report traces the history of the struggle for human rights as a common human experience and outlines the new frontier of the rights agenda for the 21st century. It demonstrates the ways in which human rights enrich human development goals; adding moral force and ideas of claims, duties and obligations. Human development, in turn, brings a dynamic long-term perspective to human rights and adds more concrete analysis - quantification - and must consider the human rights impacts of policy choices. The report analyzes how human rights must be respected, protected and promoted in the development process.show more

Review quote

"Excellent as usual. Thorough and timely application of the importance of human rights."--Stephen J. Scanlan, Ohio State University"The great importance of this book, Human Development Report 2000, lies in its close and comprehensive integration of human rights, norms, principles, and advocacy closely with concerns of poverty and development. Its linking of human rights, democracy, and development is a real breakthrough."--Peter H. Juviler, Barnard Collegeshow more
