Sovereign Debt and Human Rights

Edited by Ilias Bantekas and Cephas Lumina

Chapter 13: “The Right to Development” by Gail Hurley, Policy Specialist on Development Finance, UNDP

I was delighted to be a contributing author to this fantastic book edited by Illias Bantekas and Cephas Lumina and published by Oxford University Press

Sovereign Debt and Human Rights:

  • Provides cutting edge analysis as the first book to link sovereign debt with human rights
  • Draws together contributions from global experts with academic and practical experience, including current and former UN independent experts
  • Examines the impact of structural adjustment programmes on human rights and the economic sovereignty of debtor states

Chapter 13 explores the difficult and complex relationship between debt and the right to ‘development’. Please let us know what you think!
