Abstract
The Human Rights-Based Approach is an approach on development programming designed by the UN. It brings together all human rights principles recognized in our modern history eventuating in a normative framework. This framework is huge, containing complex concepts that each can be read in multiple ways. The result from this is a mess – talking a lot without saying much. Somewhere among all the fancy expressions and wording the UN lost it's main purpose.

It is important to look closer in to the work of the very powerful United Nations. They are important global actors with the world as their work-station. The HRBA is only a fraction of what UN has created since it's start. The UN likes to show off with their HRBA, but for what reason?... (More)
The Human Rights-Based Approach is an approach on development programming designed by the UN.

It is important to look closer in to the work of the very powerful United Nations. They are important global actors with the world as their work-station. The HRBA is only a fraction of what UN has created since it's start. The UN likes to show off with their HRBA, but for what reason? What is this spectacular invention that is going to put an end on human rights violations? If this is not the objective, then what is and does it actually work?

After having had a closer look it is obvious that the HRBA is simply an abstract theory. In theory, it might be good and efficient but theory almost never seem to match with reality. (Less)
