This timely book explores what key lessons can be learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, adopting a forward-looking approach to the socio-economic rights of vulnerable groups. It highlights the ways in which we can better prepare for future times of crises.

Chapters utilise a human rights-based approach centred on equality to deepen current knowledge and understanding of a range of economic, social and cultural rights issues, including often neglected rights such as the right to science. In addition, contributing authors advocate for the (re-)prioritization of the domestic implementation of socio-economic rights protection. They explore how this can be achieved via increased investment in scientific progress and its applications, by regulating private actors, and with increased international cooperation.

Building on important research in the field, this innovative book is an essential resource for human rights scholars and law students looking to broaden their knowledge of the socio-economic challenges post-Covid. Policy makers and human rights organisations seeking to understand the inequalities compounded by the pandemic will also benefit from this prescient book.
