Courting Social Justice, edited by Varun Gauri and Daniel Brinks, is a great contribution to the growing scholarship on the comparative adjudication of socio-economic rights. It offers an empirical analysis of the role of courts in implementing health and education rights in five countries: South Africa (chapter 2, by Jonathan Berger), Brazil (chapter 3, by Florian Hoffmann and Fernando Bentes), India (chapter 4, by Shylashri Shankar and Pratap Mehta), Nigeria (chapter 5, by Chidi Odinkalu), and Indonesia (chapter 6, by Bivitri Susanti). It also provides an analysis of the horizontal application of socioeconomic rights obligations to private entities (chapter 7, by Helen Hershkoff).
