This article, published in Spanish translation in the Mexican journal Letras Libres (and reprinted in the Peru legal journal Ius Inter Gentes), argues the links between improving human and legal rights protections for people living in poverty and success in ending poverty. It then examines approaches to achieving improvement in human and legal rights of people living in poverty, illustrating with examples from a variety of NGO programs. Previously the article has not been available in English.
