Human Rights Based Approach at Sida
The main purpose of the HRBA is to empower boys, girls, men and women to claim their human rights (as rights holders) and to increase the capacity of those who are obliged to respect, promote, protect and fulfil those rights (as duty bearers). Photo: Sida
Sida’s methodological material on the Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) includes information, tools and inspiration on how to integrate and apply this approach into Swedish development cooperation. The Human Rights Based Approach (called the rights perspective in Swedish policy) provides a legal ground and principles that guide Sweden’s work for people living in poverty.
