Kristoffer Marslev, Hans-Otto Sano

Research output: Working paperResearch


The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development reaffirms that social, environmental and economic development are mutually interdependent. Policy making for sustainable development involves fostering a virtuous cycle, where these aspects reinforce rather than undermine each other. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to a better understanding of how such a virtuous cycle can be achieved between social and economic development. More specifically, the paper explores the relationship between human rights and economic development.
