Development & Human Rights

No development without human rights: improving the lives of the most marginalised, those whose rights are most at risk of violation.

Franciscans International (FI) works with partners at national and international levels to monitor the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and their resulting impact on human rights. FI denounces human rights abuses by business actors in the context of national economic growth and development strategies—with a particular attention to mining, dams and industrial megaprojects. FI also promotes participative strategies in national efforts to curb extreme poverty.
