oa ESR Review : Economic and Social Rights in South Africa - Justiciability of economic, social and cultural rights : Experiences from domestic systems, Fons Coomans (ed) : book review

Volume 8 Number 3
  • ISSN : 1684-260X



This book explores the topic of the justiciability of socio-economic rights in a new fashion by giving the reader a flavour of the experience of different jurisdictions. It comes at a time when the debate on the nature of state obligations pertaining to socio-economic rights is regaining currency, mainly because of the revival of efforts to adopt an optional protocol to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights providing for a complaints procedure. The contributions address the topic from various angles, which gives the book a comparative outlook.
