The objective of the human rights-based approach (HRBA) to development is to ensure that development work explicitly and systematically (1) takes into consideration the standards provided by economic, social, cultural, political and civil rights, and (2) applies and strengthens human rights principles, such as empowerment, participation, non-discrimination, equality, transparency, and accountability. The realization of human rights is at the heart of a HRBA to development. Through the application of a human rights-based perspective, structural and institutionalised causes of power imbalances, discrimination, exclusion and, thus, poverty are identified.
