Abstract: This paper has been elaborated by the Rights and Development Group, staff members of seven Aprodev member-organisations and Lutheran World Federation/Department of World Service as an Aprodev-observer, after examining present policies and practices of their organizations and with due reference to the Mandate given to the group to coordinate efforts related to rights and development. The aim of the paper is to establish a common understanding within the group of the relationship between rights and development and to strengthen a joint agenda in this regard. The paper also offers a shared language for the organizations to facilitate coordination, particularly in work with mutual Southern partners.
