The debate regarding the implementation of socio-economic rights in national jurisdictions is growing. At the international level, states parties to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) are required to take steps to achieve the progressive realisation of these rights. At the regional level, states parties to the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights (African Charter) have to adopt measures to implement the rights contained in the Charter. These include the right to work, the right to health and the right to education (articles 1, 15, 16 and 17).
