Human Rights Based Approach to Development

This post on Librarians and Human Rights blog caught my eye. It reminds me of conversations I’ve had with folks who are working in economic or health development, and who didn’t agree with the priority I was giving to education and access to information in human development. They looked at Maslow’s heirarchy of needs, and seeing hunger and health as the first problems to tackle over illiteracy and poor education.
