Poland's 1998 report reviews inequalities in access to education against the background of human rights, of long-term changes in human development, as well as new requirements for learning determined by the needs of the "knowledge society".
The Lithuanian Human Development Report 1998
(LHDR-98)is the fourth in a series of annual national
reports financed and conceptually supported by the
United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)in
Lithuania since 1995.Its theme has been inspired by
The main questions addressed by Kyrgyzstan's 1998 report are the following: how effective has the state been in organizing and managing the transition from the previous command economy to a more pluralistic market-based economy?
The report attempts to give an insight into the processes underlying the development of the human development indicators. Four issues have been chosen for examination in detail, each being covered in a separate chapter.
The Report stresses the issues of civil society and human rights. In 1998 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, one of the most important international documents in history.
