Samuel Dash Conference on Human Rights - Multilateral Development Banks & Human Rights: Issues, Challenges, Opportunities


Date: Monday, April 7, 2014
Time: 09:30AM - 05:30PM
Description: The relationship between human rights and development has been a topic of debate since well before the 1986 Declaration on the Human Right to Development. Much of the academic and policy discussion has focused on how specific bi-lateral and multi-lateral development agencies can or should incorporate human rights into their work. This conference will examine issues, challenges and opportunities in the context of an ongoing review of World Bank lending safeguards and Inspection Panel reforms, an effort to frame a post-2015 global development agenda, and a new planned development fund led by the BRICS countries.
