RightsUp #RightNow - Sustainable Development as a Human Right (with Olivier De Schutter)

In September 2015, the UN adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all people. These are the UN Sustainable Development Goals, to be realised by 2030. The Sustainable Development Goals replace and build on the Millennium Development Goals, which were established in 2000 with targets set for 2015. The Sustainable Development Goals make some important changes to the development agenda, and one significant update is that they include an overt commitment to human rights for the first time. But how to integrate human rights into development agendas remains an open question. What will the relationship between human rights and the Sustainable Development Goals look like in practice?

This episode is part of a special series on “Working Together: Human Rights and the Sustainable Development Goals” a British Academy project led by Professor Sandy Fredman, Fellow of the British Academy and Director of the Oxford Human Rights Hub. As part of this project, the Academy convened a roundtable in January 2018 with academic experts, policymakers and practitioners from the UK and overseas to discuss the ways in which human rights and developmental goals can work together to achieve the SDG agenda and particularly gender equality and women’s empowerment. Professor Olivier de Schutter participated in the discussion.
