Development Studies

Learning outcomes

The aim of this web-based course is to provide an in-depth understanding of the interface between human rights and development.


The course examines the different legal and institutional actors and structures (e.g. UN, World Bank, EU), which have a crucial role to play in the context of international law and development. In addition, topics such as the Millennium Development Goals and the human rights-based approach to development, which is an increasingly applied approach in development policies and discourse, are presented. Human Rights and Development consists of 5 interrelated modules. Prior to the start of the actual modules, participants should familiarize themselves with the contents of the introductory week, which will facilitate and function as the first step to the theme. Each module then introduces a theme related to the inter-linkage between human rights and development. Every module builds on what was presented in the previous module. The right to education is a common theme in the three last modules. The so called human rights-based approach to development is the main focus in modules 4 and 5.
