    Human Rights Based Approach

    How to integrate gender and the RBA into the Action Document: methodology and some examples

    Gender equality, women’s empowerment and the leave no one behind approach are key to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Nevertheless, even if the commitment to mainstreaming or integrating gender analysis and perspective across all instruments and modalities is gaining prominence in the Commission, the practice is not yet as robust as intended. In many contexts gender mainstreaming is happening in the social sectors but is limited to separate components in other sectors. Same applies also to the Rights Based Approach. Then, we need to strengthen our competences, both at HQ and EUD, regarding the new coming programmes.

    Tool-Box: A rights-based approach

    Following the adoption, in 2012, of the Agenda for Change and the European Union (EU) Strategic Framework on Human Rights and Democracy, the European Union committed to move towards a Rights Based Approach for development cooperation. This commitment is shared and strongly supported by civil society. This tool-box describes what a Rights Based Approach to development is, by highlighting its core concepts and their rationale, clarifying common misunderstandings, introducing relevant legal references and other donors' commitments.


    Please see the updated HRBA toolbox adopted in June 2021.
