Human rights and foreign aid : for love or money? by Bethany Barratt( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By trying to alleviate poverty abroad, foreign development assistance tries to meet, among other things, basic human needs, which some schools of thought classify as basic human rights. However, because development abroad has often been treated as a tool for the pursuit of donor interests, rather than as an end in itself, it often ends up not only neglecting basic human rights, but making the situation worse." "Bethany Barratt develops this argument by presenting a systematic external examination of the internal documentation of aid rationale in three major donor countries (Britain, Canada and Australia). The book sets the discussion of these documents in the context of the foreign policy process and structure of each donor, and contrasts it with the results of statistical analyses of key factors in aid. It shows that different criteria are applied to the various categories of recipient states, resulting in an inconsistent treatment of recipient rights as an aid criterion." "This book will be invaluable to students, researchers and policy-makers in the fields of politics, economics and development."--BOOK JACKET

What are the broader implications of these changes for international human rights law? To what extent have these changes altered domestic human rights practices? What can we predict about the future of the international human rights regime? Four thematic sections address: 9/11 and changing definitions of warfare 9/11 s impact on international law The relationship between freedom from terror and other human rights Human rights and international organization since 9/11.
