This dissertation analyses how development injustices can be confronted by investigating the nature and extent of human rights obligations on the World Bank. In the wake of human rights violations occasioned by the Bank in developing countries, the silence of distinct human rights obligations is loud. The current frameworks that speak to the issue of these obligations at the World Bank offer weak answers to complex questions. Despite the intensification of human rights violations by the World Bank, these frameworks have remained static and maintained a disconnection from, and avoidance of accountability of the Bank.
