Human rights policy

21 July 2010

"A Rights-Based Approach to development sets the achievement of human rights as an objective of development. It uses thinking about human rights as the scaffolding of development policy. It invokes the international apparatus of human rights accountability in support of development action."

This policy bases Concern’s contribution to the elimination of absolute poverty, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, on the respect, protection, and fulfilment of the human rights of those living in absolute poverty.
