Abstract
This thesis and minor field study have aimed to examine the relationship between infrastructure (defined as water, electricity and roads) and Human Rights and how this affects the individuals perceived Human Rights, but also how we can better understand this relationship.

This thesis and minor field study have aimed to examine the relationship between infrastructure (defined as water, electricity and roads) and Human Rights and how this affects the individuals perceived Human Rights, but also how we can better understand this relationship. The field study was conducted locally in Liberia and resulted in nineteen different interviews. The method being used has therefore been Naturalistic Qualitative Interviews, which has been semi structured. The data deducted from the interviews was analysed through the scope of the selected method of Human Rights Based Approach. What this thesis and field study has been able to find regarding the relationship between infrastructure and Human Rights is that the infrastructure plays a big part in how the respondents perceive their Human Rights, but that it is inadequate to just emanate from the respondent’s infrastructure prerequisites to explain how it affects. In order to obtain a greater understanding and an adequate explanation of the relationship between the respondents and their infrastructure prerequisites, it was necessary to create a framework to go more in-depth. Through the framework, the thesis was able to conclude that to receive a genuine understanding of the relationship between infrastructure and Human Rights, you must examine the respondent primarily and the infrastructure secondly.
