2019/11 – open access book; Author(s): Markus Kaltenborn, Markus Krajewski, Heike Kuhn (Editors)

This book analyses the interplay of sustainable development and human rights from different perspectives including fight against poverty, health, gender equality, working conditions, climate change and the role of private actors. Each aspect is addressed from a more human rights-focused angle and a development-policy angle. This allows comparisons between the different approaches but also seeks to close gaps which would remain if only one perspective would be at the centre of the discussions.
