- Friday 3 December 2010
This research project has been led by Prof. Gordon Crawford from POLIS and Prof. Bård Anders Andreassen from the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights at the University of Oslo. It explores the interrelationship between a rights-based approach to development and the dynamics of power. Advocates of a rights-based approach often emphasize ‘empowerment’, yet neglect those structures and relations of power that can deny rights. The research provides empirically grounded studies that examine the struggles of rights-promoting organisations in various country contexts. It aims to provide new insights into the interrelationships between struggles for rights, power and poverty reduction.
Country case-studies include: Cambodia, China, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
The workshop presents the preliminary research findings from a team of international researchers based in Norway, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, United States, Australia and… Leeds.
