"One of the most ambitious legacies of the 20th century was the universal commitment to ensure freedom from want as a human right. But to what extent are countries across the world living up to this commitment? This ... book develops an innovative, evidence-based index for comparing performance on education, food, health, work and housing across very differently situated countries and over time. It explores the factors influencing performance and provides empirical evidence to resolve some long-standing controversies over the principle of 'progressive realization'. By defying the boundaries of traditional research disciplines, this work fundamentally advances our knowledge about the status of and factors promoting social and economic rights fulfillment at the dawn of the 21st century"--Publisher's description
Human insecurity in a global world ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 147 libraries worldwide
"The authors in this volume explore a series of human insecurities that are created or exacerbated by new patterns of global interactions. The problems examined include migration, natural disasters, contagious diseases, and environmental change. All of the authors address the policy frameworks, national and international, that shape possible responses to the fresh threats to human security. Many of the challenges described here are already high on the agenda of the international community. By adding a human security dimension to their analysis, these authors provide new insight into attempts to reduce our vulnerability to global changes."--Jacket

Millennium development goals : ideas, interests and influence by Sakiko Fukuda-Parr( Book )
7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
"Heralded as a success that mobilized support for development, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) ushered in an era of setting development agendas by setting global goals. This book critically evaluates the MDG experience from the capabilities and human rights perspectives, and questions the use of quantitative targets as an instrument of global governance. It provides an account of their origins, trajectory and influence in shaping the policy agenda, and ideas about international development during the first 15 years of the 21st century. The chapters explore: whether the goals are adequate as benchmarks for the transformative vision of the Millennium Declaration; how the goals came to be formulated the way they were, drawing on interviews with key actors who were involved in the process; how the goals exercised influence through framing to shape policy agendas on the part of both developing countries and the international community; the political economy that drove the formulation of the goals and their consequences on the agendas of the South and the North; the effects of quantification and indicators on ideas and action; and the lessons to be drawn for using numeric goals to promote global priorities. Representing a significant body of work on the MDGs in its multiple dimensions, compiled here for the first time as a single collection that tells the whole definitive story, this book provides a comprehensive resource. It will be of great interest to students, researchers and policymakers in the fields of development, human rights, international political economy, and governance by numeric indicators"--The publisher
Human rights and the capabilities approach : an interdisciplinary dialogue by Diane Elson( Book )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
Among several contesting views about the purpose of development and how progress should be evaluated, human rights and capabilities (or human development) stand out as two approaches that are concerned first and foremost with the well-being of individuals, their freedom, dignity and empowerment. These two approaches contrast sharply with the dominant development frameworks that emphasize economic growth as the essential objective. Though human rights and capabilities share these common commitment to human priorities, they are distinct concepts and fields that have developed separately. The aim

Critical and Feminist Perspectives on Financial and Economic Crises by James Heintz( Book )
5 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
Economic and financial crises have become perennial features of today's global economy. Macroeconomic theories of crisis, including the global crisis that unfolded in 2008, emphasize the role of financial deregulation; capital flow imbalances; and growing debt, fueled by income and wealth inequality. These approaches tend to be divorced from feminist thinking which analyzes broader distributional dynamics transmitted through structural channels and government policy responses, with an emphasis on gender, race, class and ethnicity. This volume brings together innovative thinking from heterodox macroeconomists and feminist economists to explore the causes, consequences, and ramifications of economic crises. By doing so, it highlights aspects of the economy that are frequently overlooked or ignored, such as the impact of crises on the vast amount of unpaid work which women perform relative to men.--

Food security in South Africa : human rights and entitlement perspectves ( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Although the term itself was only developed in the 1970s, food security has played a central role in policies that have shaped the history of South Africa from the 17th century. As with the changing international interpretation of food security over the past four decades, South African food security determinants have been interpreted differently by different ruling authorities and governments over three centuries. The Natives Land Act of 1913 played a significant role in determining the food security context of the country in terms of the character, composition and contribution of the agricultural sector, shaped consumption patterns and determined rural livelihoods. While food security is expressed as a national objective in a plethora of strategies and programmes, no formal evaluation has been carried out of the food security impact of these programmes, and there is a dire lack of coordination and no enforceable policy to ensure food security. Any national food security policy will need a framework of enforceable legislative measures and statutory coordination and reporting. This article explores the current national and household food security and nutrition situation in South Africa, and it offers recommendations for a comprehensive food security policy
