The Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action, adopted in the World Conference on Human Rights in June 1993, reaffirmed the indivisible and interdependent nature of all human rights. Yet the category of economic, social and cultural rights remains a subject of debate and controversy.;This book is a comprehensive textbook on internationally recognized economic, social and cultural rights. While focusing upon this category of rights, it also brings out their relations to other human rights, civil and political rights in particular.
