Since the first edition of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in International Law was published in 2009, there have been several important developments including:-
It has been fully updated to include new material and up-to-date coverage of the case law of human rights bodies and national courts on ESC rights. In addition to the rights to health, education and work covered in the first edition, the second edition analyses new developments including rights not covered in the first edition such as trade union rights, right to an adequate standard of living (adequate food, water and housing), right to social security and the right to take part in cultural life.
It also considers the relationship of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) to other areas of international law; admissibility under the Optional Protocol to the ICESCR; regional protection of ESC rights; more examples of the domestic protection of ESC rights; the protection of ESC rights of vulnerable groups (such as women, children, youth, persons with disabilities, older persons, prisoners, minorities, migrants, indigenous people, refugees and internally displaced persons); and contemporary challenges to ESC rights including poverty, armed conflicts and terrorism.
All these developments presented in a clear and illuminating manner, will be of use to the judiciary, human rights practitioners, human rights activists, government institutions, academics, and students alike.
