Human Rights from Community: A Rights-Based Approach to Development

Synopsis

Poverty, exclusion and lack of participation are symptomatic of state and market-based approaches to human rights. Oche Onazi uses Nigeria as a case study to show how the idea of community is a better alternative, capable of inspiring the poor and the vulnerable to organise themselves democratically and claim ownership of the processes that determine their human rights.
