Human Rights Impact Assessment

Tue, 2008-02-12 16:30 - 18:00
Charles Meredith House : 1130 avenue des Pins Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 1A3

In the last decade, many institutions, mostly international, started to develop a methodology called Human Rights Impact Assessment (HRIA) in the field of development projects and fight against poverty strategies. Due to the influence of the social sciences, HRIA brings to another level the theory of human rights, namely theories of discrimination. Is HRIA more than a tool? Does it provide added value to development? What impact does HRIA have on the politics of human rights, now under the influence of the measurement paradigm?
