Abstract
Development in the sense that we currently use the term has existed since the post-war period and its orthodoxy has changed significantly in the course of time.

In their Capability approach the individual, with the entitlement to human rights and capabilities, gained the central position to which previous paradigms had been oblivious. The relationship between human rights and development has shifted from strong interrelation to coexistence... (More)
Development in the sense that we currently use the term has existed since the post-war period and its orthodoxy has changed significantly in the course of time.

Human development emerged as a re-orientation in development thanks to the contributions of Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum. In their Capability approach the individual, with the entitlement to human rights and capabilities, gained the central position to which previous paradigms had been oblivious. The relationship between human rights and development has shifted from strong interrelation to coexistence without contact. Human development has now shifted back to a strong recognition of the significance of a human rights perspective. (Less)
