Rights-based and pro-poor economic policies

The human right to development was recognized by the Declaration on the Right to Development (UNDRD) in 1986. drawing upon the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).11 The connection between these two declarations is more than merely superficial, and it could be argued that the UNDRD elaborates the implications of the UDHR for economic and social development. The UDHR sets out not only general principles concerning civil and political rights, it also describes social and economic rights, including, among others, the rights to social security, work, rest and leisure, education, and participation in the cultural life of the nation.12
