The dynamic relationship between international development discourse and human rights discourse is inexorable as well as embedded in the same history and circumstances from which both discourses emerged. Human rights paradigm represent an intrinsic part of and give meaning to human development, while development approach represents the means and processes necessary to realizing human rights. This paper argues that the extent and success of human development could be measured in terms of its success in advancing and making possible the attainment of human rights through adjusting social, political, and economic structures. This paper utilizes Jordan as a case-study.
