Only in the past 15 years or so, with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the realization that freedom and economic well-being are empirically linked, have the professional communities dealing with development and human rights issues begun to communicate effectively. But too much of the dialogue has been confined to an abstract or theoretical level. The eminent contributors to this volume address highly specific but crucial aspects of the human rights and development interface, including the economics of social rights; land rights and women's empowerment; child labor and access to education; reform of legal and judicial systems; the human rights role of the private sector; and building human rights into development planning, especially the Poverty Reduction Strategy process.
