Check out our “4 Demands for Just and Sustainable Development”.
This issue also includes a timely update on the implications of the changing political landscape in Burma and the risk that the rush of investment funds and aid will open the door for land grabs and evictions in the name of “development”.
Plus from feminist human rights scholar Purna Sen, an analysis of the use of “morality” language in international human rights standards- as may be the case in the draft ASEAN Human Rights Declaration.
And as we have in every issue, read all the latest news on the APWLD network.
