Integrating Human Rights into Development: Donor Approaches, Experiences, and Challenges

The World Bank and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

Third Edition | 2016

Maryna Kavaleuskaya served as a key researcher for "Integrating Human Rights into Development: Donor Approaches, Experiences, and Challenges, Third Edition." The book was co-published by The World Bank and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and reviews two decades of donor approaches to integrating human rights in development policies, consolidating the findings and research compiled from myriad international political statements and policy commitments from 2006-2012 with key developments and experiences from 2012-2016. Specifically, the third edition "reviews the current practice in the field [of human rights] and draws together experiences that form the core of the current evidence around the contribution of human rights to development. It discusses both new opportunities and conceptual and practical challenges to human rights that concern the development partnerships between donor and partner countries, and the workings of the international aid system more broadly." The Acknowledgements sections specifically notes Ms. Kavaleuskaya's contribution: "The NTF [World Bank Nordic Trust Fund] acknowledges the work of Maryna Kavaleuskaya ... who undertook the bulk of the research work of the third edition in 2015-2016."
