Human Rights Lecture: Sustainable Development & Human Rights

  • Date: Oct 1, 2015 (Thursday)
  • Time: 3pm to 5pm
  • Venue: Brickfields Asia College (PJ Campus), PJ

Sustainable development and human rights are intricately linked. The respect for human rights has been recognized as a prerequisite for development. If people’s fundamental human rights are threatened, if people lack the basic human rights of food, health, education, shelter, freedom of expression and the right to political participation, their ability to participate in sustainable development is hindered.Therefore, strategies and policies regarding human rights and development need to be integrated to create a human rights-based approach to sustainable development that will deliver benefits to all communities.
