There has been a growing interest in economic, social, and cultural human rights in recent years, particularly following the adoption of the 2009 Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR).
This book offers an in depth analysis of the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights from an international legal perspective.
The book will provide a detailed account of the structure and functioning of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in the light of its jurisprudence, analysing Committee procedures and practice including the recent Optional Protocol providing the right for individual complaints.
The book will also consider the possible implications of the work of this Committee on other UN Committees, and the repercussions of its work on the international protection of fundamental rights, such as the right to education, to health and adequate food.
