Volume 16, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1684-260X



This is the first decision of the Committee on International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) after the entry into force of the Optional Protocol to the Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in May 2013. The Optional Protocol was adopted in 2008 to allow for individual communication to the CESCR. It is believed that individual access to the CESCR will not only strengthen accountability mechanism to realize socio-economic rights, but will also give hope to the hopeless (Chenwi: 2010).
