Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights in Action

Edited by Robert McCorquodale and Mashood Baderin

On December 16, 1966 the United Nations adopted the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. It became the first global treaty to establish legal obligations on states to protect a range of important economic, social and cultural rights. Forty years later the vast majority of States have ratified this treaty, but despite this history, there remains considerable debate, both within the literature and within the international community generally, about the subject. This collection gives a coherent analysis of many of the key issues, both in concept and in application, relevant to economic, social and cultural rights in action.
