In order to strengthen human rights in development cooperation (DC) partner countries, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has adopted a human rights-based approach that requires all bilateral DC projects to mainstream human rights standards and principles. DEval analysed how successfully do DC Projects implement these requirements in practice in the second part of the evaluation “Human Rights in German Development Policy”. The analysis focussed on projects from the intervention area “Private sector and financial system development”. This policy brief summarises the key findings of this evaluation.
