Supporting the Work of the Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights in 2015


This is a project proposal to support the work of the Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Professor Philip Alston, during the second half of 2015. This funding will enable the Special Rapporteur to: (i) develop thematic expertise and engage with stakeholders on the issue of international financial institutions and human rights which will feed into the Special Rapporteur’s thematic report to the General Assembly in 2015 on the World Bank and Human Rights as well as into his activities to promote the adoption of a comprehensive human rights policy by the World Bank; and (ii) develop and disseminate thematic expertise on the issue of inequalities and human rights to enable him to follow-up effectively on his thematic report to the Human Rights Council (HRC) in 2015 on Inequalities and Human Rights; and (iii) undertake additional research for a planned country visit in the second half of 2015.
