The Economy of Human Rights

Research on the economic relevance of human rights in Burundi

‘The Economy of Human Rights’ is a research on the interdependence of economic development and human rights. The project has been developed in collaboration with Foundation We Are and Justice&Peace.

This research investigates how the economic development of communities can have an influence on the implementation of human rights in Burundi. By investigating the terminology of economic development and international trade agreements, it speculates on how they can be used to create a resilient inclusive economy in Burundi.
