Abstract:     
This article is about the plurality of international human rights law; it explores the political, policy, and practical dimensions of human rights law as they relate to the work of the World Bank. It is situated within the broad debate of the role of human rights in aid and development policy, and also within the more particular discussion of the place of human rights in the strategic thinking and operational practices of the World Bank.
