Human Rights and Development
This thematic group studies how human rights protection and implementation are advanced or obstructed by development policies by states, international institutions, and private commercial and non-commercial actors.
About the group:
The group is multidisciplinary and addresses issues that range from the local to the global. One of the main goals of the group is to create an academic environment in which human rights-based approaches to development can be empirically tested and conceptually refined. We have special interest in business and human rights, disability rights and corporate responsibility.
