Description: The book is a compilation of two earlier papers. The first, originally published in 1995, addresses conceptual issues associated with a rights approach to development. The second paper, originally published in 1998, is a manual for a human rights approach to development. It tackles the practical questions of implementing a human rights approach and attempts to describe what a human rights approach to development assistance means in practice and how to go about implementing it. The manual covers situational analysis, goal and standard setting, plans and programs, monitoring and evaluation, and participation.
