Poverty production and human rights in the African context

Volume: Volume 11(1) - 2007

Article type: Refereed article

Author/s: Mubangizi, John C

Professor Mubangizi argues that international human rights norms and values not only socio-economic but also civil and political should be infused into poverty reduction policies and institutions, which should include a restructuring of the global economic order. In his view this would play an important role in halting the vicious cycle of poverty produced, inter alia, by the structural imbalances inherent in globalization; poor governance; conflict, political strife and social disharmony; ignorance and lack of and inappropriate education; and disease, especially HIV/AIDS.
