In the space of two decades, social rights have emerged from the shadows and margins of human rights jurisprudence. The authors in this book provide a critical analysis of almost two thousand judgments and decisions from twenty-nine national and international jurisdictions. The breadth of the decisions is vast, from the resettlement of evictees to the regulation of private medical plans to the development of state programs to address poverty and illiteracy. The jurisprudence not only implicates our understanding of economic, social, and cultural rights, but also challenges the philosophical debates that question whether these rights can and should be justiciable.

Book Description:

This book analyzes almost two thousand legal judgments from around the world that directly concern human rights such as housing, health, social security, and education and demonstrates that such social rights litigation can have an impact on social disadvantage when appropriate remedies are given and when there is adequate follow-up.

With numerous articles and books on human rights, economics, and law, he is a recognized expert in the field of economic, social, and cultural rights.
