A handbook for implementing the UN Guiding
Principles on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights

Following the adoption of the Guiding Principles on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights by the United Nations Human Rights Council in September 2012, ATD Fourth World and Franciscans International agreed that a handbook was needed to translate the legal language of the Guiding Principles into concrete suggestions to help those working at the local level to better understand the implications of human rights for people living in extreme poverty.

„This handbook is a practical tool for social workers, policy makers, civil servants, law enforcement oicials, teachers, health care providers, and human rights advocates working at the local level to ensure that public policies reach the poorest members of society and respect and uphold all their rights. I am convinced that it can help to create an enabling environment in which people living in poverty are empowered to lift themselves out of poverty.“

Magdalena Sepúlveda Carmona
United Nations Special Rapporteur
on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights (2008-2014)
