Nombre Development and Human Rights : Implications for the Globalised World
Tipo Enseñanza a distancia
Institución organizadora
Human Rights Education Associates, Estados Unidos de América
Fecha de inicio 17/09/2014
Fecha de finalización 28/10/2014
Objetivos The course examines the historical evolution of the links between human rights and development, the contested nature of their meanings, the classical doctrinal debates about the right to development and the consequences of such conceptions for international human rights law and policy debates. Participants will explore the new streams of critique that have enabled a confluence as well as a questioning of the human rights-development linkages. In the latter part of the course, selected current issues in the human rights-development interface that are salient from a policy perspective will be examined, including the impact of justiciable socio-economic rights such as public health, land and housing rights, labour rights etc. How does international adjudication of human rights responds to questions of development and the ways in which globalisation and liberal economic arrangements affect the human rights and development debate? Finally, the course examines the role and accountability of financial institutions in these interfaces, their reforms and the international legal regulation of development projects including the security-development nexus that focuses on state building.
