The Background paper on the Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) is part of a series of Tana good practice guides. It should be read in conjunction with the HRBA How-To Note that aims at offering guidance on how to apply these findings in practice in assignments. As you will notice, the Background paper presents a more complete analysis of HRBA and looks at the comprehensive full-fledged HRBA approach. This approached inspired Tana’s approach, while not being reflected 100%. While targeting Tana staff and associates first, these are tools, we hope, which will prove useful for partners and others.
