Exploring Social Rights looks into the theoretical and practical implications of social rights. The book is organised in four parts. Part one considers theoretical aspects of social rights, and looks into their place within political and legal theory and within the human rights tradition; part two looks at the status of social rights in international law and various legal systems which are of special interest in this area (the European Human Rights system, Canada, South Africa, India and Israel); part three looks at the content of a few central social rights (such as the right to education and the right to health); and part four looks at the question of the relevance of social rights to distinct social groups (women and people with disabilities).
This book will be of interest to anyone concerned with human rights, the legal protection of social rights, and social policy.
