Provide a 5 pages analysis while answering the following question: What Are the Benefits and Drawbacks of Applying a Human Rights-Based Approach to Development. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. If a country faces the problem of food shortage and other countries extend aid for reducing the food shortage, this situation hallmarks the concept of need. On the other hand, right is something that can be claimed and that must be extended by others. As a result, it can be extracted that globally humans have the right to claim for their part of share and right in the process of development. And it is this approach that is gaining momentum in many parts of the world as the United Nations, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), European Union and other international organizations have already acknowledged the validity of this approach (Ussar, 2011).
This is the main benefit that this approach has a participatory approach for extending the ambit of development to the needy classes of society (Gilbert, 2014). In the traditional development process, only the rich have been allowed to avail the benefits of development in which all types of basic human needs are easily provided to the rich classes. However, thanks to the HRBA, in the process of development, some part of that development can be provided to the poor, who are unable to avail these basic necessities. In addition, through this process, the poor will be in a better position to contribute to the development process as well. For example, if children of poor family have been given right to avail education of an international repute and all educational expenses are borne by the international rich countries and donor agencies as well, after a few years, the same children can become scientist, who invent new drug to cure the disease of HIV and AIDS. In other words, the rich countries and donor agencies have not only given right to a poor family but they have also enabled them to participate in the war against HIV and AIDs which are the main hurdle against global growth and development as a considerable amount of funds are allocated to control the damage of such deadly diseases. .  .  .  .
