Powell-Willingham and Capitman begin with this observation: scholars and practitioners of contemporary human rights law, coexistence initiatives, and progressive economic development have acknowledged the need for greater engagement and integration across the relevant fields of study and practice. Powell-Willingham and Capitman argue that there is insufficient dialogue within and among the areas of human rights, coexistence initiatives, and progressive economics and social theory. In particular, there is insufficient dialogue about the complex and dynamic causal matrix of human rights, coexistence, and development. Consequently, they seek in this paper to highlight opportunities for potential integration of these approaches.
