The Human Rights Approach to Social Protection
The current political momentum around social protection provides a unique opportunity to reinvigorate the development agenda. At the same time, there remains a pressing need to further examine the human rights implications and outcomes of social protection systems. In this seminar, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights, Magdalena Sepúlveda, explored the human rights framework for social protection. She addressed how human rights obligations should be taken into account in the design, implementation and monitoring of social protection systems around the world.
