Reflections on the Right To Development
This important contribution to the understanding of the Right to Development (RTD) presents it as a viable alternative to existing approaches to development.
The essays in this volume are grouped into three sections. Part One introduces the concept of RTD and discusses its theoretical and historical aspects, highlighting its normative content and identifying implementation issues. Part Two contains empirical case studies from India and Sri Lanka and examines national development policies from the RTD perspective. The third part explores the links between social choice and the right to development.
