MVC OZIOKO, Ikenga K.E. ORAEGBUNAM

Abstract


Human rights are a product of a philosophical debate that has raged for over two thousand years. Respect for human rights is an important index of national and individual development. It seems that a measure of a country’s claim to be developed is based on how the human rights of its citizens are protected and enforced. This paper briefly examines the relevant thread passing through the observance of human rights ethos, foreign investment and national development.

Specifically, this study demonstrates how foreign investment can lead to national development within the milieu of protection of and respect for human rights.
