Conflicting Rights : Using rights-based approaches in Chiapas, Mexico
This thesis examines the role rights‐based approaches play in the provision of health and nutrition programmes in southern Chiapas, where service provision is already perceived to be politically motivated. Whilst the thesis is about using rights‐based approaches in a political context, it also says something about the consequences of such an approach and thus about the theory of rights‐based approaches itself. The central question I ask is the following: What is the role of rights‐based approaches for governmental and non‐governmental service provision in a (post‐)conflict setting in which service‐provision is not politically neutral?
