Chapter Summary

The promotion and protection of human rights and the application of the human rights-based approach (HRBA) to development programming have gained considerable prominence in the work of the United Nations since the UN reforms initiated by the Secretary-General in 1997. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) issued its policy of integrating human rights with human development in January 1998. Since then human rights have emerged as a key area of the organisations development activities. Operationalising the theoretical framework has proven to be more challenging than anticipated, however, and in looking back at approximately ten years of UNDP engagement on the subject matter, three distinct phases can be identified. The three phases, namely, human rights and development (1997-2002), human rights in development (2002-2005), and the human rights-based approach to development programming (2005- ), are discussed in the chapter.
