Linking Social Protection and Human Rights: A Resource Platform for Development Practitioners and Policy Makers

http://www.unrisd.org/sp-hrBild 009

Both human rights and social protection have emerged as key elements in discussions on poverty reduction and the post-2015 development agenda. Key UN processes and documents, development actors and human rights advocates generally affirm that there are synergies between the two agendas. However, there is a lack of systematic discussion on the human rights implications and outcomes of social protection programmes. This platform is designed to provide expert legal and development resources on how to better align social protection and human rights. It is targeted at policy makers, development practitioners and human rights advocates with the intention of strengthening a growing social protection community that cuts across disciplines.
