Chapter Summary

Human rights approaches to development and poverty reduction can help promote a sense of justice and fair play in a country that can, in turn, stimulate the development process. Good governance under the rule of law and with respect for human rights is the antidote to dictators. The United Nations (UN) Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Central Africa was first called for by the Fourth Ministerial Meeting of the United Nations Standing Advisory Committee on Security Questions in Central Africa. The mission of the Centre is thus to help strengthen the national human rights capacity of Member States with a view to sustaining the development of a culture of human rights and democracy for the prevention of conflicts and the promotion of sustainable development. The Centre's emerging documentation and library collection is an important resource base for sub-regional educators and researchers.
