“The Human Rights Approach to Social Protection” by Magdalena Sepúlveda and Carly Nyst

Extreme poverty is the world’s greatest human rights issue. This publication, authored by the UN Human Right Council’s Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty, Dr. Magdalena Sepúlveda, together with her assistant, Ms. Carly Nyst, draws the attention of the world community to the key role of social protection in the reduction of extreme poverty – and to the critically important role of human rights in the implementation of social protection. The purpose of this publication is to make sure that the main messages of her reports are saved and shared with gradually expanding networks of partners in the North and South, so that they may enrich, influence and transform development policies all over the world.

Taken from Heidi Hautala’s (Minister for International Development) Foreword
