Human Rights in Development, Volume 2
Edited by Peter R. Baehr, Hilde Hey, Jacqueline Smith and Theresa Swinehart
This edition of the Yearbook on Human Rights in Developing Countries focuses on government policy with regard to the relationship between human rights and development in Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway. These thematic studies make a contribution to the discussion on the role of human rights in development policy in what are termed like-minded countries.
The Yearbook also contains eight country reports which assess human rights trends in countries in the South, covering civil and political as well as economic, social and cultural rights during the period 1992-1994. The reports have a common structure, allowing comparisons between countries. Reports appear on Bangladesh, Botswana, the Philippines and Sudan, which were last covered in the 1990 Yearbook, and Nicaragua and Surinam, last covered in the 1991 Yearbook. Colombia and Nigeria are reported on for the first time.
The Yearbook on Human Rights in Developing Countries is a joint project of the Chr. Michelsen Institute, Bergen, the Norwegian Institute of Human Rights, Oslo, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, Lund, the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights (BIM), Vienna, and the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM), Utrecht.
