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.

-Vi trenger mer enn juridiske og politiske instrumenter, sa SMRs direktør, Inga Bostad, i sin innledning til et seminar med et særskilt internasjonalt og bistandsorientert perspektiv på rettighetene til mennesker med nedsatt funksjonsevne.
