Research Handbook on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights as Human Rights

Research Handbooks in Human Rights series

Edited by Jackie Dugard, Associate Professor, School of Law, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa, Bruce Porter, Executive Director, The Social Rights Advocacy Centre, Canada, Daniela Ikawa, Legal Officer, Open Society Justice Initiative and Adjunct Professor, Columbia University, US and Lilian Chenwi, Professor, School of Law, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa

This exciting Research Handbook combines practitioner and academic perspectives to provide a comprehensive, cutting edge analysis of economic, social and cultural rights (ESCR), as well as the connection between ESCR and other rights. Offering an authoritative analysis of standards and jurisprudence, it argues for an expansive and inclusive approach to ESCR as human rights.

‘Contested and marginalized in legal research, the field of economic, social and cultural rights has experienced a bloom in scholarly attention over the past ten years. With contributions by leading scholars and practitioners, this Research Handbook represents an up-to-date and in-depth analysis of the most salient mechanisms, doctrines and cross-cutting issues in the field. It constitutes an indispensable resource for policy-makers, scholars and advocates interested in the contribution of human rights to the eradication of poverty and inequality.’
– Professor Sandra Liebenberg, HF Oppenheimer Chair in Human Rights Law, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa and Vice President, UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
