Economic and social rights

In: Handbook of Globalisation and Development

Listed author(s):
  • Christopher Jeffords

Beginning with an outline of the origins of economic and social rights found within the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights, this chapter provides an overview of the current state of quantitative economic and social rights research. The focus begins with general indicators of economic and social rights outcomes, such as the Social and Economic Rights Fulfillment Index and ultimately considers the nascent research on specific rights including the rights to social security and work, the right to a healthy environment, and the rights to education and health.
