Human Rights-based Approaches toward Poverty Alleviation and Development: Means to Solution under the Tapestry of International Human Rights Laws
Md. Abu Bakar Siddiq

Poverty and development are interlinked. Poverty is caused for multi-dimensional reasons. It can be elucidated from human rights perspective subject to the principles of participation, empowerment, accountability, and non-discrimination and equality.  Identification of common figure of poverty is not possible due to variety of economic growths. Few countries like Bangladesh and India have no satisfying per capita Gross Domestic Product, hereinafter GDP, but they are, somewhat, in advance position in Human Development Index, hereinafter HDI, than of higher per capita GDP country. Reversely, few countries are avoiding human rights standards for poverty eradication but they are in advance position in HDI than of those countries which are comparatively satisfactorily implementing human rights standards e.g. China and Russia. So, it can be said that development is not sole matter of higher economic growth or implementation of human rights standards but also something more than thereof. Therefore, it is plausible that poverty is matter of Rights-based Approaches as well as other relevant attributes. This paper aims to build inter-link among human rights in searching how far human rights are inter-linked and when to call a right is realised on the realisation of its counterparts and how does it contribute in poverty alleviation. Moreover, it will consider the aspects and principles of participation, empowerment, accountability, and non-discrimination and equality as poverty alleviation tool and finally recommendations followed by conclusion.
